Reflection: Accountability Constructions Teaching Project: Day 1 of 3 - Section 1: Launch the Constructions Teaching Project


I wanted to create opportunities for students to collaborate more easily, so instead of suggesting students use a lesson plan template (as I have in the past), I shared a lesson plan template with each group via Google Drive.  I then passed out 1-2 chromebooks to each group so they could begin collaborating on the lesson plan and working on a Google presentation or Prezi. 


I thought this was a good change for a few reasons:  (1) I was able to give students a structure they could work within yet adapt to their own style, (2) I increased accountability for high quality work by specifying a date/time for each group to share their lesson plan with me, and (3) I created opportunities for students to use technology to collaborate with each other more easily.
