Mod 5 final showcase

  1. 1. Module Five Final Showcase Project Design This is a refined version of your earlier project proposal and should contain many more details. It should also contain an assessment rubric that must reflect each objective of your entire project. An example of a rubric will be provided in this module. Designer Topic: #2 Teaching Critical Thinking Strategies in the Classroom through Aesthetic Experiences Designer Topic Title: The Addition of Nursery Rhymes with Art into a Spring Reading Program. Name of teacher/designer: Shari Grabow Grade level and/or discipline: Kindergarten Date of completion: April 14, 2010 Name of Peer Reviewer: Megan Askegaard Designer Topic Focus: Integrating my Nursery Rhyme unit into my yearly end-of-the-year spring program. My spring program currently includes the reading of student creations, some music with actions, and artistic creations that show parents some of the things they have learned during Kindergarten. I would like to add nursery rhyme drama, nursery rhyme songs with actions, and nursery rhyme art creations. Designer Topic Objectives: (state clearly 5-7 learning objectives) The student will: • gain an appreciation for classic Mother Goose nursery rhymes. • learn new vocabulary through the nursery rhymes. • learn how to rhyme through fun rhymes and songs. • explore other versions of rhymes through books, songs, and websites provided by teacher. • illustrate and narrate a favorite nursery rhyme. • perform the class’s two favorite nursery rhymes for an audience.
