Presentation Days

  1. Presentations should be done over 2 to 3 class periods, depending on class size. In the presentation, students should show their understanding of the basics of geometry, as well as have the opportunity to design the presentation and create their marketing message. This is an assessable part of the project and should be graded. In PBL, a presentation to an adult audience rather than the teacher is helpful. However, if this is not possible, bring in a panel of fellow teachers to improve performance by students. Refer to the Overview of Assessment for further explanation. 
  2. Upload presentation slides or other material to the Project Gallery
  3. Videotape the presentations for feedback. Presentations may be posted on Curriki.
