Reflection: Accountability Constructing a Science Fair Display Board - Section 1: Engage


In trying to help students become more responsible for the completion of their work, I provide them with various checklists. I show the students how to use checklists at the beginning of the year and I include videos about project requirements on our Google classroom page.

By having the students go through the report checklist, I am helping them to develop the habit of double checking the work they have completed while keeping track of items that still need work. Having students review the checklist individually and then with their science fair partner helps to hold them accountable for knowing where they stand in terms of project completion.
