DRACULA PBL

K12- PIKES PEAK SCHOOL

This project was designed to encourage student inquiry by first having students ask a driving question.

Students then investigated sources to locate the answer to their question while sharing their progress for peer support and feedback before finally presenting their project in the format of their choice. 

RUBRIC/GRADING CRITERIA

This project was graded on the following criteria: 

* Research & Process: Students integrated at least three reliable sources

* Content Knowledge: Students understood the content that was required to complete the process in this project

* Product Skills: Students used appropriate and effective resources and tools to develop their final product

* Product Design: The project was designed with clarity and answered the driving question

PROJECT DETAILS

A note on sharing- students were pre-warned that projects would be shared publicly. They had the option to opt-out of sharing their work outside of our school community. 

Project Breakdown:

* Introduction- Students read Bram Stoker's Dracula prior to completing this project.

* This project ran for three weeks during which students were given the project expectations as follows:

        Week One- Students shared their "driving question" and thoughts on what medium (presentation tool) they could use to present their information. The driving questions and mediums were shared in class (or asynchronously for students who were not in the live class session) and each student received feedback from peers on if their chosen question would provide enough information to create a project, what mediums would work best for presentation, and some thoughts on directions that could be taken to approach the question. 

       Week Two- Students revisited prior learning on reliable sources and citation expectations. For this course, I kept citation requirements very lenient. Students were given the option to give and receive feedback on their rough drafts. 

        Week Three- Students submitted their final draft and received feedback on their projects from peers during class.
