  5. 5. Our Challenge: Curriculum How can we find ways to integrate engineering and technology into our curriculum in a way that will enrich student understanding of our content area? How are we supplementing the engineering knowledge students are gaining in POE? 2009 Academy Leadership Summit Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow
  6. 6. Studying the technology that was developed during the time period of a piece of literature helps students discover the historical, social, and cultural context of the literature. 2009 Academy Leadership Summit Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow Our Solution: English

  20. 20. Grading <ul><li>In total, this project is worth 100 points. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1 of the project components will be worth 40 points. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2 of the components will be worth 30 points each. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Students choose which part they want to be worth 40 points, and which parts they want to be worth 30 points each. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(Choice in grading leads to increased ownership!) </li></ul></ul>2009 Academy Leadership Summit Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow
  21. 21. Grading Example <ul><li>If they think they did better on their model then they would give themselves a 40 on their model. </li></ul><ul><li>So they choose which part of the project deserves the higher amount of points. And which part deserves the least amount. </li></ul><ul><li>40%+30%+30%=100% </li></ul>2009 Academy Leadership Summit Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow
