Project directions: Step One
- Find your group members and table assigned to your group by doing the following:
- Go to StudentVue (Use the Phoenixunion.org site and it is under Students tab).
- Check your grades for English 1.
- In the assignment "Groups for What makes a good STEAM student", you will find a number. That is your group number.
- Find the table matching that number and proceed with the rest of the directions.
- To learn each other's name, complete these steps to learn each other's names.
- Going around in a circle, state your name.
- Again, going around in a circle, name your favorite movie.
- For the third round, describe your best quality OUTSIDE of school and academics.
- As a group, find me to take your quiz over names. Each of you must know the following:
- Name of each member
- One fact you learned from that member
- As a group, generate a list of factors your group believes a successful STEAM student should have: Academic skills, personal skills, collaboration skills, etc.
- Generate AT LEAST 10 skills needed.
- Email this brainstorm to me following these guidelines. Only ONE person needs to email this:
- Email: email@example.com
- Subject line: Project brainstorm
- List names of group members at the top.
- Underneath, copy and paste the brainstorm.
- If you are very techie, cc your fellow group members.
Project directions: Step Two
- On a SINGLE sheet of paper, write down each group member's name.
- Each group member needs to select one person on campus to ask one question. This person must be a sophomore and older, including any adults you see.
- Write the selection of interviewee for each group member (For example, Joe, Jane the security guard)
- Today, tonight, ask this question and record/write down the answer:
- What does it take to be successful at Metro Tech High School?
- Each member must have this answer tomorrow for English.
Project: Step Three
- Select one person to take notes from all members.
- Each member needs to report on their interviewee and the answer given.
- As your group listens to the responses, the recorder needs to take notes in one document.
- Once all have reported, each member needs to sign the bottom of the notes agreeing to what the notes report.
- Turn into Ms. Birch.
Project: Step Four
Example (and no, this example may NOT be used by any group):https://www.roguecc.edu/SASP/QualitiesforSuccess.asp
- Using your brainstorm list, assign each of your group members to a topic. At this stage, it may be wise to elect a leader and recorder.
- Each member needs to do a cursory or quick search in Google of the topic.
- For the sites found, evaluate and choose one to focus on for this step.
- At the top of the page, type of the name of the site and the URL (this starts with http or https).
- Find at least 10 facts/suggestions/points on that topic per person.
- Paraphrase those 10 in a Word document or on a sheet of paper.
- Be ready to use on Thursday, as I will be granting points for individual note taking.
Project: Step Five
- Homework: Write up of members' answers
- Using each members' homework (asking one person the question "What makes a student successful at Metro Tech HS?"), create one document that reports the information.
- When combining into one document, use Google Docs and share that document.
- For directions on how to use Google Docs and sharing, click here.
- Please share the document with me at this email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Criteria for evaluation:
- All members' answers included
- Polished and clear in language structure
- Document for me
