Example of a Technology Embedded Collaborative Project
PROMPT: Narrative/presentation NARRATIVE COLLABORATIVE PROJECT (to be completed in groups of 3 or 4) In Magic School Bus Lost In the Solar System, the class went on a trip into space. Plan a trip into space with members of your group. Include a sequence of events. Characters' actions, thoughts and feelings should be evident in illustrations, in writing and in narration of events. Prewriting- Illustrate a sequence of events involved in taking a trip into space. Illustration should show what will happen first, next, then, and last. (Provide large paper with landscape orientation for illustrations) Part 2: Collaborate to plan actions for each event in story. Record (in writing) important information to describe sequence of events before dividing responsibilities of orally presenting each event. Part 3: Incorporate technology (Photostory or Glogster) to produce final product to be shared with classmates. Part 4: Evaluation of self and peers following presentation. (Rubric will serve as a guide.) 2 nd GRADE CCGPS ELA Module 3 PLANS FOR ASSESSMENT 3 Integrating reading selections from the unit into a writing task
