Exhibit for school fair: Each group will construct an exhibit for the school /community fair (they have to get approval first – please, look above “Fair Exhibit Idea”). Possible ideas include, but not limited to, philosophical debates, Greek plays/skits inspired by the Ancient Greek literature, constructions (ancient temples, theaters, buildings, sculptures etc.), ancient Greek inventions, Greek inspired Olympic games, role playing scenarios and simulations, interactive displays and presentations, etc. Their exhibit will be evaluated based on this rubric. Additionally, the teacher will hold a “gallery walk” where each group will evaluate the exhibits of two other groups (peer evaluation) and make suggestions on how to improve them.
Essay about their special topic (Science, Painting & Sculpture, Literature & Theater, Architecture, Political System, Sports, Law): Students write an essay about their special topic as a group. Each member of the group is responsible for a specific portion of the essay. Their essay will be evaluated based on this rubric. Also, each group will use the rubric to evaluate the essay of two other groups assigned by their teacher (peer evaluation /”gallery walk” – different groups than before).
[ The aforementioned peer evaluations allow students to broaden their knowledge and experience on subjects that they didn’t have the opportunity to explore in-depth on their own. ]
Flipgird video presentation: students are asked to create a Flipgrid video presentation about their exhibit for the community members that could not attend the school fair. Their Flipgrid video presentation will be published on the school’s website and evaluated based on this rubric.
Self & Peer evaluation of team work: Students will evaluate themselves and their team members for their group work.
Students’ Reflection: Students are asked to reflect on the project they completed. Reflective writing gives students the chance to analyze their educational experience, incorporate it, and make it pertinent to their personal needs. Their reflection should fully address the reflection questions (credit PBLworks) that have been given to them and should also go through how the readings, assignments and material in this project relate to their personal goals/needs.
