Major Project Requirements Explained
Follow the rubrics...all specific requirements are listed there. Below are the required components from the rubric explained in more detail and with helpful links and information provided.

Information Page(s)

This is where you put all of the required content from the topic you are assigned. It can be one long page or multiple pages with links. Make sure all required content is displayed, there are sources for everything in order at the bottom of each page and you include pictures, graphics, video clips, etc.

Lesson Plan Page:

You need to create a lesson plan for your presentation. It must include the major components from the Presentation Rubric. You must also cite all sources used to plan and create your presentation notes and activities.
Your lesson plan is pretty much an outline of what you will be doing during your presentation. Please include all of the following on your Lesson Plan Page:

-timing (how much time you are spending on different lesson components)
-materials and visual aids (list and describe each, especially any materials needed for a lab)
-sources (list any sources used for lesson ideas and information)
-daily objective or learning goal (what students are expected to learn during your lesson)
-segments (list explain each segment of your presentation)
-explain your notes segment
-activities that classmates will complete
-assessment (how are you checking that students learned from your presentation)
-team roles (who is responsible for each part of your presentation - remember you are getting a team work grade)
*ATTACH ALL HANDOUTS, LABS, NOTES WORKSHEETS, ETC. TO THIS PAGE BY FRIDAY, May 16 and let me know if you want me to print them for you! Otherwise, you need to bring in all of the copies yourselves.

Tips for Great Lesson Presentations
  • interactive (involve students in the lesson)
  • plan multiple student activities (discussions, games, etc.)
  • provide handouts or worksheets
  • have an exit or check
  • post an objective for the presentation
  • have students rate their scale understanding
  • utilize diverse types of audio and visual information (multimedia)
  • PRACTICE (especially to make sure you planned for the timing of the presentation)
  • provide VERY CLEAR instructions to student activities

Game or Quiz Activity:

You need to create an online review game or quiz based on the content of your website. Your classmates will complete this activity after reading the information on your website. This either needs to be embedded in your website or linked from your website ON ITS OWN PAGE. The page should be called "Activity".

Your game or quiz must also display the answers after students complete the activity.

Some website suggestions for creating games:
-Poll Daddy Polls (there is a widget in weebly for this)
-You can use Powerpoint
-Google Forms - The grades will be posted in a spreadsheet, so you will have to show students there scores if you do this option.

Resource Links:

Provide an organized list or chart with links to relevant videos, websites, images, etc. These need to be high quality links from reputable sources.


You must cite sources for EVERY picture, book, article, video, website, etc. that you use in creating your website. Read the "Copyright and Acceptable Use" page before listing your resources.

Concept Map

Create and post a DETAILED concept map of your topic on the website. This should be a lengthy graphic representation of all the key terms and concepts related to your topic. A concept map shows relationships. There are several programs for creating concept maps online. Two good ones are and Cmap Tools (this one you will have to download on your home computer).

Here are some examples of concept maps:





EXTRA CREDIT: Infographic (up to 20 pts.)

An infographic is a graphic that contains data, information and images. They are created to visually explain information, terms, concepts or ideas. View these examples below:
-Ms. Wasson's Sample Infographic
-Sample 2
-Sample 3
-Sample 4
-Sample 5

You can use any of the following sources for creating them. (Make sure you cite any sources of pictures or content that you get from any site other than the ones below.)
- Piktochart
- (this is the site I used to create the first example)
- Microsoft Word
- Microsoft Publisher
- Apple Pages
- Any other web-based, free "infographic" creating software

Once you have yours created, you need to embed the infographic on a webpage so that you can see the graphic. I do not want it saved as an attachment. I want it to be visible on the site when you go to that page. The websites should tell you how to do this. You can also find instructions on Google.
