    1. Working Independently, but with your PLC group, you will begin to develop a rubric for you Formal Authentic Assessment. This assessment will be a performance assessment where the student will demonstrate their knowledge thruogh a project or a presentation. 
    2. Using  what you learned about constructing rubrics in LA 5.2 and your notes from Gottlieb M.(2016) Chapter 4 and your reading from HW 5.2, develop a rubric and or scoring guide for the task you identified.
