10 Things I Love

With many students done with their mysteries, we're getting a head start on our May writing/technology project. This project is called "10 Things" and it will be worked on in class and posted to the class wiki page.

The inspiration for this project comes from a blog post I read on one of my favorite blogs, The Miss Rumphius Effect

For this project, students will make a list of 10 things that they really love. Then they'll write about why they love them. Seems simple, right? Well all 10 things have to start with the same letter! AND they don't get to pick the letter. I do! 

Here's a little slideshow that I showed to students that reveals their letters:

My goals for this project include writing clear, focused, detailed paragraphs; importing photos into wiki pages; using hyperlinks; and using online photos responsibly by citing sources correctly.

This should be lots of fun. It will be worked on at school during the month of May and it WILL be required to be presented at the third trimester exhibition. Stay tuned for more updates and be sure to contact me with any questions that you have.

I think this is a great idea. I might adapt it and use it in my class. Thanks very much...
