 Don’t write on the student’s OER itself. Just give it a score.

 Teach students how to score and have them score each other’s. (If they don’t agree with a peer’s
score, they can always ask you to rescore it. Just tell them that your score will be the one they

 Have students highlight their own OER’s or someone else’s before turning it in. (For example, pink
for correct answer, yellow for relevant supporting details, green for analysis/insights.)

Ideas for Teaching Writing

 Take someone’s score point 1 answer (anonymously), make a transparency or put it on the
presentation station or Promethean board, and as a class, turn it into a score point 3 with the class.
Give them another score point 1 answer and have them do the same individually or in small groups.

 Give them a question and a transparency or large piece of paper or a laptop (Promethean can use
Active Expressions) as a group. Analyze and score groups’ answers as a class.

 Focus on getting one part of the answer at a time. Teach them how to read and respond to what the
question asks. Then teach them how to find evidence and how to quote or paraphrase. Then teach
them how to tie it together with commentary/analysis.

Places to Find or Ways to Write OER Questions
Note: Pair or triple readings that provide evidence for a question when possible—for example, use the
paragraph or section from the textbooks + a primary source OR a cartoon + a primary source OR a
current event + a cartoon, etc.

 Warm up activities and questions (Are the Appalachian Mts. or the Rock Mts. older? Would you
vote for Obama or McCain and why?)
 Classwork/homework questions from the textbook (“Critical Thinking” section)
 Primary source responses
 Current events questions
 Test questions
 TAKS (turn a multiple choice question into an OER)
