Anticipatory Set Project Overview Sequence of Activities Grading
Admiration: an object of wonder, pleasure, or approval. Someone you hold in great regard, affection, and approval. Someone you look-up to.
You will each pick a famous person that you admire. You will do research on this person using the Internet. You will then create a PowerPoint slideshow on your subject to show the class.
Choose a subject by asking these questions: Who is someone famous that inspires you? Who is your role model? Who do you aspire to be like? Who has accomplished great things?
You will spend the rest of Week One researching your subject in the computer lab. You will need to collect ten detailed and interesting facts about your subject. You will print these facts for me to collect by the end of Friday of Week One to check your progress.
We will continue to work in the computer lab. You will be given a flash drive on which to save all your work. After participating in my tutorial on using PowerPoint, you will work in pairs to create two practice slides for evaluation.
Once you have successfully completed your PowerPoint practice slides you may begin construction of your slideshow for your most admired person. You must include the ten facts that you researched on the Internet during Week One.
You will continue to work on PowerPoint slideshows. I will be grading on neatness, attractiveness, grammar, and structure. You must include pictures/images of the person you admire. You will need to provide a few key reasons why this person is significant to you.
Presentations begin. Each student will present their PowerPoint slideshow for five to ten minutes using the information stored on their flash drive. You should speak clearly and loud enough for all to hear. You should demonstrate enthusiasm for and knowledge of your subject.
I will offer support to any who need it. Feel free to work at home to complete and enhance your projects. Remember to have fun as you learn!!!
