Well, everyone, we've completed reading the novel the outsiders and we've watched the film in class (even if we had to watch some of it on VHS - let's hear it for the retro experience!). Now it's time to show everything you've learned.
There are two parts to this Show-What-You-Know Project. See the documents below for details.
The Final Evaluation for this course has two parts. A Final Exam (5% of the final grade), which will take place during the scheduled exam period (date TBA, but sometime between June 14 and June 16), and a Final Evaluation Project (15% of the final grade). As such, the Final Evaluation counts for a total of 20% of the final grade for the semester course.
The Final Evaluation Projects will be presented, in "museum walk" format, on June 6th, 7th and 8th, in class. All students are expected to attend all of these days, as participation in other students' presentations and reflections on the work of other students as well as their own work is part of their grade for the Final Evaluation Project.
The last two days of that week, June 9th and 10th, will be focused on giving students the time to write their debrief of their Final Evaluation Projects and to review for the Final Exam.
NoodleTools is a paid service; membership is covered by Yukon Education. NoodleTools allows students to collect and properly cite information while working on research projects. It also allows them to save their own thoughts and analysis on the information they find and to organize it, as well as to keep a To Do List to organize their work and share their work with their instructor for support.
Students using NoodleTools to collect and cite their sources should share their project with user "robincarrey". Students in the period 1 class should share with drop box EN0803 FinalEval Me2We Students in the period 2 class should share with drop box EN0804 FinalEval Me2We
If / when students share with the teacher, the instructor can comment on their work and offer advice and guidance.
Yukon Education has several database memberships students can take advantage of when they are doing research. These databases can provide a great starting place to find trustworthy information, very much narrowed down from the vast quantities of data that can come off of general search engines like Google.
THE easiest way to access these resources is to go to the PCSS Library Catalogue page, because then students can get in under the school IP umbrella. However, they can also access these resources from home, using the Yukon Education username and password on the Student Resource page they got as part of the exam package. Students can also access the resources directly off of the web and use the Yukon Education usernames and passwords.
The most useful of the resources for this project would be:
