Display High Quality Exemplars

Using exemplars in learning can increase understanding of particular skills, content or knowledge. When students have little to no background knowledge, exemplars can play an important role in framing their understanding of concepts and ideas. Three critical features for displaying high quality exemplars include: 

  1. Clarifying use of exemplars for only referencing and not copying.  
  2. Building background knowledge in new concepts with exemplars.
  3. Utilizing a variety of student work samples.
