What improvements can you make to your water issue outline?
How can you cite sources using the research feature of GoogleDocs?
March 25th & March 26th - Lesson 14
Your water issue: Explain your issue using scientific language.
I will go around the classroom to answer questions and check on your progress.
Content: Students will
1) Students put Mr. Pro's feedback on our "What's Your Water Issue" Google Doc.:
|First, Mr. Pro sent us an e-mail with the feedback on our water topic...|
|... then we had to put it in our documents.|
2) With the feedback given, we had to improve our documents. Mr. Pro introduced to us a new and more reliable way of searching for something in the internet. The site is called EBSCOhost. To find it, you must log into the Library, go to the Upper School Library, then find the databases, and finally, log in using the username: graded, password: ebsco.
3) Mr. Pro went around to help with the outlines.
4) Later, Mr. Pro announced to us that EasyBib.com had died, and in its place came Google, with its lighting speed. In only three clicks you can site your sources. You simply have to add the sources you already used using the Tools → Research feature of Google Docs.
4) Finally, students started working on their presentations. Remember, you had to chose either a story, a slideshow, a video, a prezi, a poster, an oral presentation, or any combination. You could also do a debate, a model, or a brochure. Debates, prezis and slideshows are the only choices if you are working in pairs. The time limit for 1 person is 4 minutes, and for 2 people is 7 minutes.
