Cardinal Stritch Cedo 525 Final Project Corporal Works Of Mercy

  1. 1. Corporal Works of Mercy<br />Final Project – Lesson Revision<br />CEDO 525<br />Tammy S. Sjoberg<br />
  2. 2. Instructional Objectives<br />Essential Questions to be answered:<br />What are the Corporal Works of Mercy?<br />What do the Corporal Works of Mercy mean to me personally? To others?<br />What are ways in which I, a 7th grade student, can complete a Corporal Work of Mercy?<br />How can I demonstrate that I have completed a Corporal Work of Mercy?<br />
  3. 3. Current Practice<br />The Corporal Works of Mercy is currently a 7th grade unit for Religion class. <br />Students spend a day or two in class reviewing what the Corporal Works are (orally) and are then given a reflection sheet to complete and have parents sign when the Corporal Work is completed.<br />Many times students fill out the reflection sheet and have their parents sign it, but they have not actually completed the Corporal Work of Mercy.<br />There is no rubric for grading this unit.<br />
  4. 4. Current Instructional Strategies<br />Summarizing and Note Taking: students take notes on the one or two class presentation so that they are introduced to the Corporal Works of Mercy<br />Homework and Practice: students take home the reflection sheet and in theory should be completing a Corporal Work of Mercy to go with the reflection<br />
  5. 5. ModificationsTechnology Interventions<br />YouTube video that is current and uses current music to introduce the seven Corporal Works of Mercy<br />
  6. 6. ModificationsTechnology Interventions<br />Introduction to Google Apps and Google Documents so students can work collaboratively in partnerships or groups<br />Introduction to a Wiki so students can create group websites to work on Corporal Works of Mercy and to demonstrate completion of a Corporal Work of Mercy. Wiki intro includes demonstrations on inserting plugins, creating pages, and inviting others to the workspace.<br />Introduction to so students can meet online to discuss and chat about their Corporal Works of Mercy projects.<br />Video options (includes introduction to camcorders and Flip video cameras) so students can record themselves participating in the Corporal Work of Mercy as proof of participation<br />iMovie introduction so students can edit videos and create mini documentaries of their selected Corporal Works of Mercy<br />
  7. 7. ModificationsNon-technology interventions<br />Rubric creation from so expectations are communicated to students<br />Expanded unit: Rather than spending a class or two and moving on, the religion teacher will make it a focus to keep revisiting over a 6 month period. Each class will provide technology work time and possibly more technology tools for students to use in demonstrating completion in a Corporal Work of Mercy.<br />Feedback is timely to keep students motivated, on task, and in a flux of continual development (Corporal Works of Mercy are intended to be continual and experienced rather than a homework requirement for a unit)<br />
  8. 8. Technology Integration: Effects on Instructional Strategies<br />Setting objectives:<br />Students are able to define the Corporal Works of Mercy and discuss what it means to them personally<br />Students make a plan for completing a Corporal Work of Mercy<br />Students demonstrate completion through a variety of technology mediums<br />
  9. 9. Technology Integration: Effects on Instructional Strategies<br />Cooperative Learning:<br />Students have opportunities to work together to complete a Corporal Work of Mercy. <br />Group work is accomplished through Google Apps such as Documents, Calendars, and Presentations, Wikis for presentations and sharing<br />Tokbox for video meetings and chat<br />Reinforcing Effort: <br />Creation of a rubric allows students to see expectations and follow accordingly<br />Providing Feedback:<br />The teacher and students can communicate via email or through sharing Google Apps and being invited to Wiki workspaces. Feedback is timely and relevant<br />Providing Recognition:<br />The teacher now has a variety of tools to recognize student work and can do so using the same methods as in providing feedback. Because the teacher is more aware of what is going on as it is going on, examples of good work can also be shown to other students<br />
