Begin Design Work

  1. Teams review websites or other presentation methods. 
  2. Hand out a storyboard or similar planning tools. 
  3. Teams choose a presentation method and prepare a preliminary sketch of ideas.
  4. If time permits, teams share ideas using the Does It Fit? Visible Thinking Routine. 

Tips and Tools

Have plenty of resources for students to look at, including 13 Tips to Designing Websites for Teens, Blogster, Padlet, Prezi, Doceri, and Haiku Deck. Explanations about these sites can be found in the Tools and Resources.

Teams can use the storyboard tools from GoogleDocs. Depending on resources, teams may also use other formats, such as paper/pen, whiteboard, Word, or PowerPoint.

Have each team review the Presentation and Performance section of the Project Rubric.   

Have students enter their observations (what they learned, what they need to learn, etc) in their Daily Learning Logs
