State Report Presentation
In beginning this project, I will have a lot of background
knowledge information to cover. We will discuss how to choose
website as resources. Students will learn to determine how
credible a website is. I will take the students to a few of the best
research sites using the LCD projector and my laptop. I will
create a reference guide for them. It will list the sites that we
discussed as well as some searching tips. We will also review the
rubric for the research portion.
Secondly, we will review how to take notes from research as
well as how to site resources. Students will take notes on this
process, but I will also provide a handout. The research portion
of this project will be done at home, however, students will be
required to bring in their research and notes on specific dates.
This will allow me to check for completion and process.
Once the research has been mostly completed, we’ll spend a
few days working with PowerPoint. Students will watch/take
notes as I take them through the basics of the program. Since we
don’t have a lab at my school, they will have to work at home on
this. I will work with any students who do not have computers
after school. We will review the tips for a good PowerPoint and
discuss presentation techniques and strategies that are more
effective in maintaining the audience’s attention.
I will have checkpoints and trouble-shooting sessions
throughout the next two weeks during which I will check
students’ progress and give help where it is needed.
Students will be given time in class to rehearse their
presentation in small groups. I will be able to offer feedback and
after seeing their presentations. Their peers will also be able to
