Presentation Days

  1. In the presentation, students show their model, as well as offering evidence that their model will meet the needs of the future. To the extent that the teacher can create a TED-like atmosphere in which students act as ‘futurists,’ the presentations will be more fun and authentic. This is an assessable part of the project and should be graded. In project-based learning, 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.
  2. Videotape the presentations for feedback and posting. Presentations may be posted on Curriki.
