Presentation Days

  1. In the presentation, students show their understanding of the basics of geometry, as well as have the opportunity to design the presentation. This is an assessable part of the project and should be graded. In PBL, presentations 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. Videotape presentations for feedback and posting. Presentations may be posted on Curriki.
