Editorial Reviews


"Kay Burke's authenticity naturally extends to her professional writing and speaking engagements. Her professional development opportunities attract educators who know they will walk away with new research, new strategies, and something to do TOMORROW. This wonderfully practical book contains real examples from real teachers, helpful checklists, and rubrics. I particularly like the application and reflection pages, and I wish every principal would use them with their teachers." (Julie Davis, Executive Director 2010-04-27)

"At last, a text that I can use with my new teachers, experienced teachers and administrators that will make rubrics, to quote the author, “their friends.” Dr. Burke’s six steps can be easily implemented by all levels of educators immediately. Students will receive meaningful feedback, allowing them to assess their performance and set goals to make their work even better. The end results are empowered teachers, engaged students, and increased student performance." (Mary Ellen Kotz, Education Associate, New Teacher Mentoring and Teacher Evaluation 2010-04-27)

"This book outlines an easy-to-follow process for designing and organizing standards-based instruction that engages students in performance-based learning. Kay Burke effectively shows teachers how to use checklists and rubrics to put students in the driver’s seat of their own assessment for learning." (Nancy Larimer, Professional Learning Supervisor 2010-04-27)

"I have employed and tested the methods outlined in this must-have book in my own high school biology classes. The six steps enabled me to have a 100% pass rate on our high-stake exam with gain scores that almost doubled those of traditionally taught classrooms. Teaching instructional design classes for a college at the master’s level, I highly encourage students to follow the plan outlined in this book." (Richie Wood, Professor 2010-04-27)

Format: Paperback
Kay Burke's From Standards to Rubrics in Six Steps is a great book for the teacher who struggles to hit learning standards without compromising creativity and authenticity. In each section, Burke gradually builds on our knowledge by presenting us with definitions, rationale, research, and examples. This clear format will help readers gain new insight into the concept of performance tasks and authentic assessment, which bring real-world problems and solutions into the classroom. In this way, Burke tells us how we can capture student interest and address standards in meaningful and time-effective ways. A great book to have on your shelf, with over 60 pages of resources for elementary, middle, and high school classrooms.
