Due Exam Day: Wednesday, Dec. 8

ECSE 3210 Group Project and PowerPoint Presentation Assignment
(General Information for All Groups and Group Members)

The group project and PowerPoint presentation assignment will be developed using the Georgia Curriculum Standards for pre-kindergarten or kindergarten.  All members of the group will develop and present their group project to the class.  Since there will be several group presentations, each group will present for 15-20 minutes (since there are 5 members in each group then each group member will have 3-4 minutes for their presentation).  Group projects will be presented on exam day, Dec. 8.

The group project will be based on a provided scenario of a class with a different class scenario for each group.  The class scenario will identify a grade level; content area; a diverse student; a student with special needs; and a student with a problem behavior. 

Each group member will have an individual topic assignment to provide the information to develop for their group project.  See below the individual topic assignments listed for group members 1-5.  Each group member will develop an individual topic assignment paper, a Word document, to be turned in as hard copy on presentation day.

This group project assignment will include two grades of 100% each, one grade for the individual topic assignment and one grade for the group presentation (total possible grade of 200%).  The individual topic assignment grade will be earned by each individual member of the group for their individual topic assignment paper.  The group presentation grade will be earned by the entire group and each member of the group will receive the group grade.

When working in groups, it is important for all group members to contribute to the group's assignment and product.  I will ask all group members to give an evaluation of the contribution of the other members in their group.

Group Project and Presentation Process
A.  Group to Selecting Georgia Curriculum Standard

B.  Developing Individual Topic Assignment

  • Each group member will select an individual topic assignment from the list below (Individual Topic Assignments for Group Members # 1-5) and will be responsible for developing the information for their group's project.
  • Each group members will develop a paper, Word document, of their individual topic assignment. 

C.  Group PowerPoint Presentation

·         All group members will meet and bring their completed individual topic assignments to develop the group's PowerPoint presentation.  Each group member should have their individual assignments completed and have selected the main points from their Word document for their slides in the presentation. 

·         Each group member will have two slides in the group's PowerPoint presentation. 

o    The first slide of each group member should be the main points of their individual topic assignment A. Section with a., b., c., & d.  The slide should list the main points of their A. Section for a., b., c., & d. answers. 

o    The second slide of each group member should be the main points of their individual assignment B. Section with a., b., c., & d.  The slide should list the main points of their B. section for a., b., c., & d. answers. 

o   Please note: your Word document should include details for all of your answers to your individual topic assignment.  Although you are only going to select the main points for each of your PowerPoint slides, you will present and briefly explain each of your individual assignment section: Section A. with a., b., c., & d. answers, and Section B. with a., b., c., & d. answers.

·         1st PowerPoint Slide for Group Presentation: Your group will need to include in the PowerPoint presentation a title page listing all five members by the numbers of their Individual Assignment Section.

·         2nd PowerPoint Slide for Group Presentation: Your group will also need to develop a second PowerPoint slide that gives the assigned grade level of your scenario class and the Georgia Curriculum Standard that your group selected.  

·         3rd-12th PowerPoint Slides for Group Presentation: Each group will have 10 slides from group members with the main points of their individual topic assignment (two slides from each group member).  All group members will assist in the development of the PowerPoint presentation.

·         Total of 12 PowerPoint Slides for Group Presentation: See descriptions above.

·         Each group member must present their individual topic assignment slides during their group’s PowerPoint presentation.

 

D.  Dec. 8 - Exam & Presentation Day

  • Each group will turn in a hard copy of their PowerPoint presentation on exam and presentation day, Dec. 8.  The Word documents from each of the group members of their individual topic assignment are also due on Dec. 8.  (Therefore, I will collect 6 items from each group: five individual topic assignment papers, Word documents, and one hard copy of the group’s PowerPoint presentation.)
