Lesson Plan: Assessment

In addition to requiring students to complete a self-evaluation (see below), JoEllen Ambrose assesses their learning of the topic in a unit test using a traditional essay format. She has students reconsider the big questions they have worked on throughout the lesson: What is racial profiling? Why does it exist and how does it exist? When should it be used? Students also are asked to state their personal final position on the issue and discuss how they came to it.
