Essential question: What evidence am I collecting for my final project – and for what purpose?
For my final project my evidence is going to be minimal unfortunately. I have had 9 days to teach the unit, and on average 5 of 16 students have been missing each day. This had drug out the timeline of the project making it impossible to teach. With weather being nice students are out hunting. I have also had 2 students miss almost the entire 2 weeks. I really don't know what to do. Students seem to fit right into the flow easily and participate but I am not getting the data I need. I will try continuing the unit next week but up to half my class or more may be absent due to our district dance festival. I will try to use who is left but my class may be extremely small.
I do have data from the start with 3 Kahoot games, I also have question responses on actively learn, the research and planning, observations, a few videos of students, and finally I have the reflections from each day we have worked. Unfortunately I will most likely be lacking the best evidence (video lab report or written lab report). One good piece of evidence is that only 1 student has been off task during this unit. Students really like it and even stay after school to work. Some of my hardest to reach students have even come in to work after school and are totally engaged in building their house.
Here are 2 videos of students explaining their projects.
Here are the notes I have been keeping each day. This has more detailed info but is a little lengthy. Plus it does not necessarily relate directly to our essential question this week.
