How various pedagogiesMight approach the same assignment: Volcanoes By Jocelyn Werner and Michelle Stephens
Behaviorist and the Volcano PowerPoint• Step by step directions to create a PowerPoint• Provide a finished model /prototype• Provide standardized assessment rubric and due dates• Establish benchmarks for students to check in during the process • With specific benchmark dates with check in• Provide specific requirements and objectives of PowerPoint (i.e. # of slides, content area covered etc.) • Create a slide with relevant vocab and definitions relating to volcanoes.• Provide rewards (compliments, good grades etc.)• Provide consequences (poor grades, critiques to those who deviate from established model)• Provide teacher feedback about finished project using the rubric.
Constructivist and the Volcano PowerPoint• Teacher provides multiple activities for students to discover personal relevance • Allow students ample time to play and experience PowerPoint. • Encourage students to look at videos and books about volcanoes. • Interview people who have 1st hand experience with volcanoes. • Take a virtual fieldtrip to a volcano. • Create a slide that guides students through a Socratic seminar on some aspect of volcano (i.e. What would happen if….?)• Teacher suggestions to get students engaged in project • Create a slide of a volcano you would like to visit and explore someday. • Create an extended metaphor for a volcano and life (life is like a volcano because….) • Use depth and complexity icons (critical thinking) in PowerPoint to make content relevant (How do volcanoes affect the life of others? How do they affect your life?)• Student self-assessment of project • Students assess three other students’ work
Cognitivist and the Volcano PowerPoint• Research how volcanoes have affected the lives of a civilization or society; Imagine “what-if” this happened to you.• Have students read and watch videos about volcanoes• Learn about the different factors in volcano eruptions (terminology)• Give students a PowerPoint manual to study at home to develop personal knowledge.• Teacher suggestions for students projects • Students will create visuals and images to represent factual information about volcanoes. • Imbed a you tube video demonstrating a working volcano/hyperlink • Have students write what it would feel like to experience a volcano eruption.• Students collaboratively design a rubric for self-assessment
Pragmatist and the Volcano PowerPoint• Research escape and rescue techniques and disaster relief• Look up statistics about volcano eruptions• Go on a fieldtrip to the petrified forest• Teacher suggestion for student projects • Create a diary entry of someone who witnesses/survives a volcano eruption using your five senses • Describe what life would be like without volcanoes? • Take us through a virtual fieldtrip of a volcano • Extra credit = visit a museum with volcanoes and write about your experience there. • Construct a PowerPoint about life as a citizen of Pompeii
Multiple Intelligence and the Volcano PowerPoint• Learn about volcanoes from books, videos, interviews, statistics, photo essays• Students should play with PowerPoint and read manuals about it• Teacher suggestions of project ideas • Use as many different multi-medias as possible in project: Imaginary Facebook page, Write an e-mail to a volcano survivor • Create a slide using each multiple intelligence • Create a song about volcanoes • Act out a volcano eruption • Create a math problem involving volcanoes• Teacher created assessment takes into consideration all learning styles
