Cells & Homeostasis: PBL Presentation Day

Our Project-Based Learning mini-unit concluded today with students presenting their solutions to the problem of harmful algal blooms.  Special thanks to our many “stakeholders” who visited with students today.  The students did a great job sharing their ideas, answering questions, and engaging with the stakeholders to learn more about career paths.  We will debrief the experience tomorrow and then transition to a review of Unit 1 content in preparation for the Unit 1 Exam scheduled for Thursday.

Updated June 1, 2016: To conclude the WABS PBL, I presented the results of our efforts in the form of a poster at the Showcase of Success meeting at the Hyatt Hotel in Seattle on Thursday, May 26.  Again, a huge thank you to my students, the Environmental Science Center, the chaperones who made our field trip to Seahurst Park possible, the groups who worked with my students on the field trip, the stakeholders who shared information with student groups, stakeholders who attended our in-class poster session, and of course, WABS and King County Public Health for inspiring our work.

 

Cells & Homeostasis: Assemble PBL Posters

Student groups received their printed Google Doc materials and a used tri-fold poster board.  They were provided with Pirate yellow paper to re-cover the tri-folds and then began sketching out how their content would be attached to their boards.  The process helped students identify remaining areas of need so they can focus their efforts on Thursday, our final class day in a computer lab.  The pictures below show an example tri-fold layout for students who need some inspiration and guidance, as well as a list of goals for the rest of the week.
