So, I've created a workable rubric for use within the peer evaluation segment of this speech. I have decided to also utilize the same rubric to determine proper participation.
Students (as evaluators) will use the rubric to give feedback, then give the feedback via online comments within the Box.com system. Then, they will submit to me the paper version, showing their participation and appropriate consideration for each part of speech development.
Part of me feels like this might be best as a soft launch, asking students to sign on to do this for extra credit, to determine issues and alterations prior to a full version of this happening in the Fall. Still deciding.
