Day 4 NotesSee Creative Computer Exploration with Scratch: Day 4 for the lesson plan.
This session was mostly a lab session, where students either worked on the projects they already started, or started on the "Your Name In Scratch" project.
Some of the students who were already working on group projects continued. Others played with existing projects that were distributed with Scratch. About halfway through the class we noticed that nobody had independently started on the name project, so we had students turn off the monitors and we reinforced that we were having a project review on Day 5. We then got four people to start name projects.
In future seminars, moving the name project to an earlier day, maybe Day 2, might help the class focus more on what they could do with Scratch.
Having another adult in class helped immensely.
