CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.8  CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.9 Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research. CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.9 Students have also used wikispaces to create an online museum. Each student was responsible for completing research on an invention and its creator and creates a page in our “museum”. Photopeach – Online “movie making” program that allows students to synthesize research and communication new understandings. Voicethread – Online tool that allows students to present new knowledge and interact online.

15 Before we start...  Provide clear guidelines, rubrics and timeline for project.  Gather potential pictures, songs, websites for students (this will greatly cut down on “research” time).  Require a rough draft – simple sketch, storyboard, etc.  Have students create a daily task sheet – this will help them prioritize tasks and stay focused.  It is ok not to know everything about the program before you start. I usually learn just as much from the students as they do from me.

16 Formative and Summative Assessment  Socrative – Quick and easy formative & summative assessment 
