    Thanks. This is a great idea. Do you use this in your own class?

    Let's see...I think I would want to look at two basic things- the quality of
    interaction between students and the level of engagement to the task. To
    break this down a little:

    communication skills
       listening skills (does student respond appropriately to what others)
       articulation skills (does student support what they are saying?)
       quality of participation (do comments relate directly to the task or
    another students
                                        comments, do those comments show progress
    towards new
     level of ease with task (or frustration)
     Continual "forward" movement (on task behavior, continued talking, thinking,
                                                 listening, etc. about the task)
     enjoyment of task (is student animated? Does student say they enjoy or are
                                 intrigued by what they are doing?)

    Is this a beginning? I don't have much experience with creating rubrics and
    tend to overwrite-I welcome any thoughts or comments.
