Quality of Assessments: Strong (2)

The assessments are outlined very well. There is a need for rubrics for various tasks to be completed by the students.

Opportunities for Deeper Learning: Superior (3)

It isn't clear if this is collaborative or not, but a teacher could design the activities to be collaborative with some adjustments made.
