Create a Class

TimeMay 04, 2013

from:Bidell, Barbara

to:Computer Explorations

Over the next three weeks, students will be engaging in higher order thinking; they will be utilizing their technical knowledge and skill to create a class of their own involving computer technology. Students can find the rubric for the assignment in their drives along with an example of a scope and sequence. We will be reviewing that rubric and the expectations on Monday. Students will then create their own class. It could be a videography class, an engineering class, a  broadcasting class, or even a computer programming class. They will be coming up with their own budget for the class, their own assessments and assignments. This will help students synthesize their knowledge and allow them to apply it toward a practical end. 

In addition to working on this project, students will be viewing the presentation they created last month and editing the material. The presentations will be shown at an event on May 28 at 8:15 entitled "A Memorial Day Tribute."  The tribute include two presentations from the Computer Explorations class, and a play about the Korean War presented by the United States History class.

Once again, if you have any questions regarding any of these assignments or the May 28 event, please drop me a line at bidellb@nhalv.org.
