In this space, feel free to post as much and as little about what you want to do for the final assignment design.
Consult the requirements for this assignment here (it's just the link to the assignment that's been online all summer).
For things to consider as you design your assignment, click here (this is the stuff that I went over on Monday). Again, this is not a list of things you have to include, it's a kind of summary of all the things we've talked about this summer, and what I would hope would inform you as you design this assignment for our class, and in the future.
If you post, I will read and respond. You aren't obligated to post. And you are not obligated to read and respond to your classmates, though it can be very helpful to see what other folks are planning and, also, what I have to say to them about their assignments.
And it goes without saying that this is yet another way to assess students and help your students be better at whatever you want them to be better at without traditional essays and grading.
To help you with this assignment, I will shortly post about the final assignment sequence for the 7th and 8th graders I taught this summer as well as my commentary on why I did what I did, what I think worked, what I think didn't. I'm also including links to examples of what they produced. I hope this helps you think about your own assignments.
