Original Project by Francesco Ianni

Modifications


Several of the activities were modified because the original unit was created for a ninth grade class. Since the participants are fourth graders with IEPs, the activities had to be modified.

Instructional Objectives


Students:

  • Accessed the Internet to collect and interpret data.
  • Used technology to process data and research results.
  • Read and comprehended authentic documents.



Technology Integration


Technology was widely used to complete this unit. It was used to:

-conduct a search on the NYC Dept of Ed website

-figure out the Microsoft formula to calculate %

-create Graphs & Charts using Microsoft Excel


Assessment


A. Informal Assessment:
Students were required to take notes. These were reviewed to determine if the students understood the lessons.

Students were observed for both language and content area

B. Formal Assessment:
Students final products were assessed to determine if the students had completed them properly and to identify any areas that required further review.


Tips for Teachers


This unit was originally designed for ninth grade students. I wanted to present it to my fourth graders, who are below grade level. So, I requested the assistance of our technology teacher and we were able to modify it for my students. Although, the activities were different, they were still challenging.
