1. Complete the Student Interest Survey
2. Complete the Reflection about the cooperative games we played last week
The purpose of the Student Interest Survey is to ascertain what the students' interests are, what types of projects they want to do, and how they prefer to work on those projects. In order to find out these important things I created a Google Form and emailed it to the GT Cuties grades 2-5. The form requires them to answer the following questions:
- What are three things you do not already know about that make you curious?
- What projects have you seen that you would like to try in GT?
- Which do you prefer: working by myself on projects, working with one other person, working with several people on projects?
By spending time thinking about what we learned we can solidify the core objectives in a much deeper way. The GT Cuties are familiar with "Reflections," because we complete them with regularity after projects. This week's Reflection has five main components that the students will complete:
- Tell About What Happened: The students will fill in this space with sentences describing the game(s) we played together.
- The Thinking Skills of GT: In this section students wo;; select three of the GT Thinking Skills they used the most in the games. They will also explain how they used each one.
- Compliments: This is the place where the student gives a compliment to a person who helped the team in some way.
- Suggestions: In this part of the reflection the students tell about a way they would change the game to make it more challenging.
- Camera Roll: The students drew four color and detailed pictures of things that really happened during the game. Then, they write captions describing the pictures they drew.
