Day 5 Lesson Plan: Group Project Review, Assessment, Finishing TouchesThis 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.
The students will share their group projects with the class
The students will finish their 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 ReviewThe groups will share their projects with the rest of the class.
Self-Assessment(Suggestions made by Carolyn Pool, Obscure member and 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.
DiscussionGive the students a chance to ask questions about the other projects.
Announce that today we are going to start working on class projects
Let students know that today we hope to save their work to come up with a class portfolio
At 20 minutes before the class ends, help students save their work. Distribute floppy disks so that they may save their work to take home.
