Day 2 NotesSee Creative Computer Exploration with Scratch: Day 2 for the lesson plan.
Day two did not go as smoothly as day one. I had more trouble keeping the rambunctious boys in check without another adult helping. About half the class completed the lesson plan, the more rambunctious half explored the interactive art and games that were available in the Scratch archives.
I would like to find better ways to interest the students in creating their own works.
Also, I did not plan Day 2 far enough in advance to have materials to distribute to the students to take home. We should send home:
A CD-ROM containing Scratch
A letter explaining the seminar
