- Shopping Bag ( 0 items )
From the Publisher"A compilation of 50 ideas, culminating in 50 computer-generated products. Organized into three sections, it includes things that are just plain fun to make (bags, banners, T-shirts), those that are actually reports presented in nontraditional packages (acrostics, word art, paper chains), and those that present serious research (culture cards, wanted posters, totem poles). Each spread is laid out by 'Plan' (curriculum connections, software requirements), 'Prepare' (a checklist of what teachers need to know and do), and 'Present' (the step-by-step instruction), with useful diagrams, computer screens, and examples. Utilizing Microsoft products found in most schools, the projects are easy to complete, and instruction parameters include a differentiation table to accommodate varied learners and a rubric useful for judging the lesson and the product. Helpful for newbies trying their hand at basic technology, the book also has enormous potential as a resource for experienced teachers who want to teach the research process painlessly by having it culminate in formats achieved quickly and colorfully. A winner."
