The topic was chosen by the student, but it had to be a concept that the student struggled with on a test.Although these tutorials were not graded, the teacher did hold the students to a certain standard. This way, students were able to prove that they had achieved mastery of the concept before taking the retest at the end of the six weeks. The best tutorials were added to the teachers web site where other students could use the tutorials to review.

Persuasive Commercial Experiment:
ILA students at Maus Middle School were studying persuasive writing and marketing.
They created commercials about new and improved products or completely made up products. They then posted around the school a picture of their group along with the
QR code which will link to their commercial. Part of their lesson is to consider the
marketing placement of the posters. The videos are uploaded to YouTube, so the
students will be able to see how many "hits" they receive. The group that gets the
most "hits" will be our winner and receive a prize! Click here if the movie does not open as it is unlisted in YouTube.

ToonDoo: Presidential Survivor
8th grade students at Scoggins Middle school were paired with a partner and randomly drew out of a bag the name of one of the US presidents. They would be responsible for developing an election campaign with the goal of “winning” a head-to-head election against another candidate. Groups spent a couple of days researching in class and developing campaign materials and a campaign strategy. A tournament-style bracket was utilized to organize our theoretical elections, allowing candidates from different periods of history to “run against each other”. Groups presented part of their campaign in each election cycle/round and the class voted on which individual would be the best candidate from those two former presidents. Winners advanced through the tournament, concluding with the “championship” match-up to determine who was the “best” president in history. (Groups were expected to have enough campaign materials prepared to advance all the way to the final match-up, even if they lost in the first round.).Please see attached lesson plans/student handout/self and peer evaluation.

Thank you to Jeff Wisemen, now a Secondary Technology Facilitator for Frisco ISD, for graciously providing the above pdf.

Note From Jeff Wiseman:
The ToonDoo was just one of the many options for campaign materials that students could create. Students really enjoyed being able to create work products of their own choosing, as well as being able to follow their contest and other periods’ contests through the bracket system. (I printed poster-size brackets, hung them on my cabinets and updated the winners with each match-up.) The activity really focused on research and presentation skills, as well as collaboration and planning with a partner.Livvie - Obama ToonDoo.png
