Day 5 Lesson Plan: Group Project Review, Assessment, Finishing Touches

This lesson plan is for the fifth day of Creative Computer Exploration with Scratch.

On day 5 we'll have the students do a self-assessment, show their group projects, then wrap up outstanding group and individual projects.


It would be nice to be able to send home the class projects at the end of the course. We might need to get permission to distribute collaborative projects, though. (Check with school administration.)

Group Project Review

The groups will share their projects with the rest of the class.


(Suggestions made by Carolyn Pool, Obscure member and [WWW]The Association for Curriculum Development editor)

Give the students a self-assessment and feedback form that has a series of questions related to the rubrics for the seminar. It would consist of a series of "No / Sort Of / Yes" assessments with frown, straight, and smiley faces to indicate whether they agreed or disagreed with the statements. The statements should relate to the unit objectives and lesson objectives of the previous lessons.

Give the students a chance to ask questions about the other projects.

Finishing Projects

At 20 minutes before the class ends, help students save their work.
