Reflection: Adaptive Technology Informational Text Book Report - Section 4: Presentation


This was a wonderful way to show comprehension with informational text.  The kids loved creating brochures, and their final products were really cool.  The problem arose with difficulty in getting to the computer lab/work not saving/absent students.  These three issues led to a lot of frustration and a MUCH longer endeavor than I'd anticipated when I began the project.

In the future, my expectations will be the same, but the computer portion will be optional.  As much as we all love the result- some of these brochures could be placed in a Wash, D.C. hotel along with real ones - the issues were difficult.  I will require the informational text brochure, as written in the criteria, but if they choose to do a computerized version, they may do it at home or with free computer time.  Many have the desire and capability, and choice is a good thing.
