|Learning Outcomes||Definition||Course Outcomes|
|Identification||Accurately identifies and interprets evidence.||In collaboration, students identify the specific themes, events, or issues from the novel they will use as a basis for designing their performances.|
|Alternative Consideration||Considers major alternative points of view.||When developing each performance, students are asked to consider and incorporate diverse perspectives and viewpoints from the novel itself, from ways of interpreting the novel and its major themes, and within the actual performance design.|
|Accurate Conclusions||Draws warranted, judicious, non-fallacious conclusions.||The group performances themselves demonstrate powerful ways to interpret a novel, often using nonverbal methods such as music, dance, art, photography, and video to come to creative and suggestive conclusions.|
|Justification||Justifies key results and procedures, and explains assumptions and reasons.||Following the performances students write a reflective essay on the entire experience, explaining their individual roles in the group process, what they learned, and their responses to and evaluations of the class performances. Such reflection is a final necessary element of the critical and creative process of learning.|
