Captain’s Log… second last voyage of the journey….
Topic of the Day… EDU Memorable Moments
Graffiti Board… graph your day
For our read and think piece… we looked at a list of 21 Things every 21st Century Teacher should do this year….
we found that in EDU 487, we already had done 6 items off the list (thankfully we had done a parody…. Flat Bottom Clouds, make the water cycle go round)!
We did a first look at the Inquiry Maps….thought about noteworthy practices and questions we would like to ask.
Then on to the final presentations.
Team Superior Vena Cava led the charge… with an amazing Prezzi and Infographic….
WGRS-104.5 took over with their video enhanced radio show
Back to the Inquiry Maps for a quick peer review and loads of compliments!
And on to a course recap….slide by slide… looking at the images and deciphering their meaning, waiting for the signal to shout out our ideas: “oh, that is Nature of Science”; that one is “checking for understanding”… “science is a social endeavor”…. “those are literacy practices (blogging; critical claims; investigation paper; 10 slides in 5 minutes presentations; Inquiry Map)” and so on.
For Thursday we need to have the following submitted by noon: Final Draft of our Investigation Paper and Rubric; Final Blog Reflection and Rubric; and questions for the author of our last reading.
We spent the rest of the class working in teams on our Final Investigation papers… making sure to use the comments from our three instructors to strengthen the final versions.
