  1. 1. PROJECT OVERVIEWName of Project: A Space of Our Own Duration: 2-3 weeksSubject/Course: Pre-algebra/Math Teacher(s): Bell Grade Level: 7th SDC-SLDOther subject areas to Writing, technology, listening and speaking (ELD)be included, if any:Project Idea Students conduct a survey for a potential community center that will include a teen /youth center. 1. They are to collect student dataSummary of the issue, from both 7th and 8th graders, about what they would want included in a student center based upon a class made survey. 2. Studentschallenge, investigation, will then put their data together as a team. 4. They will create different graphs based upon the data with each student responsible forscenario, or problem: one kind of graph (given a variety of graphs to choose from and differentiate). 5. They will then present their data with a summary of their proposal to the class and they can choose their form of presentation (a compiled booklet made of paper, a powerpoint presentation, or a webpage with included information). 6. They have to include a reflection on their collaboration process and this can be a written paragraph, a concept/mind map, or else a video/audio reflection.Driving Question How can we decide what things should be included in a new teen/youth center in the neighborhood?Content and Skills Students will collect, organize, or represent data sets. Students will collect data and use the different forms ofStandards to be display for data sets, including stem-and-leaf plot or box and whisker plot; compare data. Understand theaddressed: relationship between two variables. Represent data through an electronic program. Math reasoning: determine how and when to break a problem into smaller parts.

  2. 2. Group: Students show their group’s collection of graphs for the data they’ve collected from their XCulminating peers, as well as summarize the findings of their data and brief proposal to the corporation Class:Products and (this can be in many different presentation forms: powerpoint, movie clip, webpage, a paperPerformances report). X School: Admin, other classes Students will give the survey to 6 people, create individual graphs for their group’s data, Individual: (given a menu of options to select from). Reflect on collaboration of group. PROJECT OVERVIEWEntry event tolaunch inquiry, A letter from the president of a corporation who wants to know if they should build a community/teen center in Highland Park,engage students: CA. We have been asked to represent the students of Burbank M.S. and find out what the students of Burbank would want in a center of this type. Student teams are responsible for collecting and organizing data and creating a proposal that shows student interest at Burbank M.S. and what the students would want to include in the center, if they were to win.Assessments Quizzes/Tests X Practice Presentations Formative Assessments Journal/Learning Log X Notes (During Project) Preliminary Plans/Outlines/Prototypes X Checklists X Rough Drafts X Concept Maps X Online Tests/Exams Other: Written Product(s), with rubric: X Other Product(s) or Performance(s), with rubric: Summative Individual graphs put together in their group __________________________________________________ Assessments presentations.

PROJECT TEACHING AND LEARNING GUIDEProject: A Space of Our Own Course/Semester: Knowledge and Skills Needed By Students Scaffolding / Materials/ Lessons To Be Provided to successfully complete culminating products and by the project teacher, other teachers, experts, performances, and do well on summative assessments mentors, or community membersGiving surveys (collect data) Discuss before start of project the value of surveys and data collection and organization. Model creating a survey (brainstorm ideas with class) and giving the survey with  several models from the teacher and other students. Have class practice giving surveys to each other on a simple topic (ex. Favorite flavor of ice cream), then practice giving the in-class survey for the project to each other.How to make graphs (organize data): different types of Using the data from the initial survey created by the class,graphs, range, quartiles show the students different ways to organize the data into different types of graphs (bar, pie, stem and leaf, box and  whisker, histogram, scatter plot) model for the students first, then use a different survey set to use for guided and the PBL can be their independent practice (as well as assessments throughout).Laws of central tendency Explicitly teach students before the start of the project how to find mean, median, mode, and range and then  review for students how to find the mean, median, mode, and range for their data from their various in-class surveys.Presentation skills Model different presentations for the students, and then with student models. Have them practice public speaking  in low-risk activities (small groups, using a script at first, sentence starters) with a rubric and giving each other feedback.Powerpoint, imovie, prezi, or iweb (webpages) For each graph example, model how to use a different type of software and do in-class activities allowing them  to practice and explore the different types. Stagger groups on the computer so that 1-2 groups per day have the opportunity to practice with powerpoint, prezi, etc. © 2008 Buck Institute for Education 4
