Reflection: Student Ownership Simple Machines Computer Simulation - Section 2: The Simulation


In order for the students to work independently and still gain the information and skills you want them to acquire, it's important to offer them structured scaffolding along the way.  The graphic organizer walks them through the activity, while making them responsible for learning the information. In the student work sample, it's obvious the student was able to work at their own pace in order to accomplish the task.  They could also work in any order they choose, so long as the entire chart was completed.
