I actually have leftover time this semester and I'm thinking about doing a big project for my lower-level learners during the last few days. I like multi-faceted projects, usually those that involve some sort of choice for the student, but not so much ambiguity that grading is a pain. In fact, grading has to be really minimal because I have zero workdays at the end of the year this year. And I am simply not going to be doing a lot in the evenings as the year winds down for my own children. usually one project will have a handful of small components. The last project I gave them was way too easy. It counted as a test grade and students were able to whip them out in an hour or two. Ideally this project would take lots of time to do well (I'd love for it to take 3 days in class - so 4-5 hours), not require internet (our school computers are not reliable and I won't make something easier for students that have smart phones than for students that don't), be super easy to grade, and offer choice. In my arsenal already: make a children's book explaining "big picture" topics. cartoon strip for a timeline How-to instructions for procedural topics. journal entries (my life as a water molecule, for example) advertisement or political ad for comparing/contrasting writing a poem or short story using vocab words making a poster with a set number of diagrams biographies on important scientists (this will require a means of research though) Do you have any suggestions of other things I can do? Again, I want to limit the need for technology with this particular class so making videos, powerpoints, etc. won't work.
