Setting up the blogs
In lieu of a formal paper, students are creating blogs for their Renaissance Faire topic and experience. They have the option of creating a blog through Adobe Spark Page or Weebly. (This is made through Adobe Spark Page.)
The first entry was due this week, and is just a progress report. This allows students to go back and reflect upon what they've accomplished this week, while also forcing them to talk and share heir research with one another.
Working on long-term projects can be tough, because there are many different elements and stages to it. I've tried to break up the assignment to make the process easier for the students.
I've created a timeline and calendar with the major due dates, but I've also made a "Today's Goal" section on my board. Below, you can see the goals and focus for the past week.
