I. Concerns:
Include: Status of final performance-based assessment (GRASPS)
Include: Status of sequence (6-Facets and WHERETO)
Include: Web 2.0 tool or tools: How is that working? Is it going to facilitate learning?

II. What is going well?

III. Next steps: What do you need?

Concerns

We are still working out the coordination of resources, making sure that there is a wide enough variety of materials so that we are not duplicating lessons/books/ideas that may be used by classroom teachers. We are looking for fresh ideas.


Needs

We all need time - time to refine goals/objectives, reflect on project possibilities, and research resources (both print and non-print).

Pat needs to spend time at the school library to complete an annotated bibliography of literature. She will focus in resources for the community helpers unit and add supplements for the other units as time allows.

Lisa needs to find resources in the school library and review materials she already has on-hand. She will work to

create assessment rubrics for student work.

Felicia needs to explore more websites.

All of us need time to explore the EC Ning.


WE NEED ACCESS TO YOUTUBE FOR LESSON PRESENTATIONS!! WE FOUND TOO MUCH GREAT STUFF THAT WE CANNOT SHARE WITH OUR CLASSES.

Good Things

We are excited!

We think we have a good sense of where we are going, what our final project is going to look like. Each of us have ideas for assessments/rubrics for each aspect of this unit.


Stephanie, Pat, Felicia, Lisa, and Amy: Here are a few resources you may want to look at while you develop your interdisciplinary unit:

This website has an article from a teacher that talks about creating an interdisciplinary unit and things to consider when doing so.
