Today the students finished the data portfolios.
I had been thinking this had to be a paper - it is funny in teaching, we tend to fall back to that, worksheets and papers.
When I came in today and reread the requirements I found:
A collaboratively developed artifact that communicates a detailed description of your group’s investigation, the questions, and your collective findings. You may use any form of digital artifact (e.g., a report, video, presentation, visualization, or combinations of these) that allows you to best communicate your investigation and findings. You and your partner will each submit the same artifact.So much better. Some groups did Prezis, some did Power Points. Some went ahead and wrote a paper.
They finished these with enough time to their individual reflections.
An individually written document that addresses the investigation. Each group member must write her/his own individual document. In writing the individual document you must adhere to the Task description above and the Requirements description below in supplying details of your investigation.
So with the proper setup we finished it in three class days.
