Reflection: Classroom Setup Evidence for Evolution: #3 of 3 - Section 4: Closure: What did we learn? Where do we go from here?


Now, the task is complete! Each and every team finished their work on time and, as can be seen in the third installment of the Student SMART Goal Success Tracker when goals are articulated clearly on the front end and during the course of work, when appropriate, the likelihood of completing a high quality task is far greater than just "hoping for the best".

On a different note, if I were to do this over again, I would make a stronger effort to preview the resource that students were to use when properly citing their information. I provided this link for that purpose. However, these students' project fails to meet the standard for citing their images. They simply wrote, "Images courtesy of (sic) Goggle". Clearly that task should have been featured on the SMART Goal Success Tracker!
