Gallery walk of Paint a Patron Project
Ms. Lapinksi’s 6th graders recently demonstrated leadership by designing their own Explorations into Ancient Greece, while also learning about Multiple Intelligences, Inquiry, and Self-Assessment. Their project design work included the creation of a timeline for completing these projects, high quality rubrics for assessing them according to categories which reflect FSI’s Habits of Scholarship, and presentations (in grand form) of the final products. See this link for the original assignment: Lead Explorer Greek Project Challenge
Greek Project Learning Targets:
I can identify the cultural influences that had an impact on Greek life.
I can draw evidence from informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.
I can demonstrate speaking and listening skills during project presentations.
Students learned about asking high quality questions (open-ended brainy ones and closed, factual ones) to guide their research.
Here are the Lead Explorer Projects created and completed:
