The 4th graders have been working on research for their Genius Hour projects, and many of them are at the stage where they can now plan how they want to present what they have learned. When they get to this phase of the process, the students must determine their intended audience(s) and mode of presenting. They are also required to include an interactive portion, which could be a game reviewing information or any other activity which involves the audience.
Many students like to present using slides, as this is a tool most of them have used many times. So, we went over the World’s Worst Slide Presentation to discuss some of the things a good presenter does NOT include in a slide show 😉
We also discussed some more Courage scenarios this week, as well as attempted to create Thinglinks of their hexagonal learning about Tuck Everlasting. (We’re still working on the latter due to some technical difficulties!)
