My approach to dynamic assessment allowed me to measure the effect of an lesson on my student’s performance. I performed a pre-test of the student’s knowledge, followed by a teaching mediation, and then a post-test to see how the knowledge changed.

Each group member is looking for specific information about the geographical boundaries of the Roman Empire during the period he/she was assigned. During the second class period, get together as a group to pool your information. Have each student give a brief report to the group. This is best done in chronological order. Spend the remainder of the second class period making your map(s). There are two ways to do this. The best way is to take a map of that part of the world and make several images of it. Mark on the first slide, use the smartboard to do this, mark the area covered at the beginning of the era of the Roman Empire. Make each subsequent image showing the stages of growth (and retreat as the empire fell apart). During the presentation, show the series of images and give a brief explanation of the ways in which the land was acquired and
