Quiz Day. Begin the Design of Presentations/Performances

  1. Begin the day with a short quiz on key terms.
  2. Teams decide on presentation methods or performance. Begin research or design.
  3. 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 Google Docs. 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.

Collect assignments from "Introduce Pythagorean Theorem Day"  for review and/or grading.

Teams should enter progress on the Project Milestones Checklist
