Impact II: Projects & Lesson Plans: A Scientific Slide Show
A Scientific Slide Show

HOW IT WORKS
A Scientific Slide Show is a program that teaches a myriad of skills. It takes quite some time to complete because it is so involved. For example, students will be taught to save their work onto the network in the computer lab. This is one whole lesson in itself. The children are walked through this process step by step. 

THE STUDENTS
The entire fourth grade, approximately 136 children, is working on the same project. I meet with them in the computer lab and in their classrooms. There are many different levels of achievement within this group, from non-English ESL students to those tested in the spring in Science. This program can be adapted by other grades according to the needs of the student. 

THE STAFF
Loula Allain has been a teacher in the New York City public school system for nine years. She has worked mainly with fourth-grade students.  She is currently the computer coordinator/staff developer for her school. She still meets with classes regularly and runs workshops for her school on a monthly basis. 

WHAT YOU NEED
The computer lab is a room filled with 32 computers and two printers. The children use their assigned machines. They may do the research by using the Internet, encyclopedias, or books in the library. The necessary software is Apple Works 5.0. 

OVERALL VALUE
In our schools we need to use our time wisely, therefore we need to creatively combine lessons we teach. A Scientific Slide Show provides this opportunity for you. It combines science, technology, and writing a research paper all in one. Not only are your students becoming proficient word processors and researchers, but at the end of the program they will also be in sheer bliss while presenting their slide show.

Several New York State Standards are addressed, as students read and understand informational materials; produce a report that includes appropriate facts and detail; independently demonstrate an understanding of the rules of the English language in written and oral work; and analyze and subsequently revise work to improve its clarity and effectiveness.
