Lesson Plan

Objective:
  • The student will understand the requirements and expectations of the classroom wiki.
  • The student will understand the safety rules for the classroom wiki.
Technology which will be used:
  • Students will have access to the laptop computers (pc or mac carts), computer lab or library computers.
  • The students will be using Wikispaces for the classroom wiki.
How the wiki will be used:
  • The wiki will be used by students to collectively post class notes for Alg 1.
  • Each lesson the teacher will assign 3 students to post notes to the wiki. Advanced notification as to group members and lesson will be given to students.
  • Notes may be in the form of written words (numbers) with examples, podcasts (voice only or video) or screen-casting (with voice).
  • The small group will have a maximum of 2 days to post their notes. If an extension is needed ask before your deadline is up.
  • After the notes have initially been posted other students may make corrections and/or additions as needed.
  • Note: When notes are in written form students may use Smartboard for screenshots which would be easier to write examples with math notations than to type them using a keyboard. This could be done after school or during a study hall.
Expected behavior of students:
  • Students will participate in the discussion.
  • Students will help create rules and guidelines for the classroom wiki.
Process or steps for teaching (i.e., what you will actually do in the classroom)
  • The classroom wiki will be discussed the first day or so of school when classroom rules and such are discussed. I will post the notes for the first few lessons to let the kids see some examples of the different options.
  • Discuss rules, students encouraged to come up with rules but guidance from teacher may be needed to cover the important ideas.
    • When your group is posting check to make sure your information is correct. Check all grammar and math work before posting.
    • All students will be respectful in their postings and edits. No trash-talk, inappropriate language, personal insults, profanity, racist, sexist or discriminatory remarks, or threatening comments will be tolerated.
    • Please reread the districts acceptable use policy.
    • Sarcasm is difficult to understand in written form so be clear with your words.
    • No posting of any personal information (yours or others) is permitted and if found will be immediately removed. Use your first name only, never a last name.
    • Students must be respectful of others work at all times.
    • Edit if mistakes or errors are found and always ask a partner or someone else to confirm mistake/error before correcting. Use the discussion area to comment on the reason for the edit/change.
    • Be aware of copyright. If using media from another source, be sure to properly cite the creator of the original work.
    • Always use a lesson title for your notes.
    • Never share your user or log in with anyone except your teacher and parents.
  • Allow students to log in and look over wiki. The district account must be used at all times when accessing the classroom wiki.
  • Further lessons may be required to
    • Explain how to navigate the classroom wiki
    • Explain how to add or edit to the classroom wiki
    • Explain how to use the discussion area in the classroom wiki.
What actions you will take and how you expect your students to respond if they find inappropriate content.
  • At the beginning of the year each student is given and read to the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP), they are to share with their parent(s). Parent(s) and student are to sign and return the form to school. Therefore students and parents are aware of the consequences of any misconduct with school computers. On the AUP parents can indicate whether their child’s picture can be used in school media.
  • Types of inappropriate content will be discussed, in general, during the lesson.
  • Any contact with inappropriate content is to be immediately reported to the classroom teacher (district policy). The teacher then reports the incident to administration and technology staff to determine if additional action is required.
  • If contact with inappropriate content is not reported and is transmitted by word of mouth or found by technology staff then administration is notified and disciplinary action is required (district policy).
  • If inappropriate material is posted to the wiki the student who posted the material will be dealt with by administration (district policy).

Permission Letter


Dear parents/guardians,
The members of Mrs. Walls’ class will be participating in a class wiki this year. The wiki will be used as a reference for class notes. Notes will be added to the wiki by students throughout the year. My goal is that students will be able to refer to these notes at any time this year and into the future.

How it will work

  • Each lesson a small group of students will be responsible for posting the notes to the wiki for that lesson. Students will know in advance the group member and the lesson they are responsible for. The students will have 2 days to complete the posting.
  • Notes may be in the form of written (typed) words and examples, an audio only posting, a video, or screencasting with audio. Students may use the classroom Smartboard to screen capture examples if they want to add them to the notes.
  • After the 2 days other students may add examples and edit for errors or mistakes.
  • Once the notes have been posted students may access them from anywhere using any internet connected device. While the students are responsible for sharing the notes, I anticipate a greater ownership and pride in the classroom wiki.
  • As the teacher I will be able to track all postings and edits. Intentional vandalism will result in disciplinary action.

The following rules were discussed in class. Please look over and discuss them with your child. If there are any questions please contact me at **//myemail@schoolname//****.abc**

  • When your group is posting check to make sure your information is correct. Check all grammar and math work before posting.
  • All students will be respectful in their postings and edits. No trash-talk, inappropriate language, personal insults, profanity, racist, sexist or discriminatory remarks, or threatening comments will be tolerated.
  • Please reread the districts acceptable use policy.
  • Sarcasm is difficult to understand in written form so be clear with your words.
  • No posting of any personal information (yours or others) is permitted and if found will be immediately removed. Use your first name only, never a last name.
  • Students must be respectful of others work at all times.
  • Edit if mistakes or errors are found and always ask a partner or someone else to confirm mistake/error before correcting. Use the discussion area to comment on the reason for the edit/change.
  • Be aware of copyright. If using media from another source, be sure to properly cite the creator of the original work.
  • Always use a lesson title for your notes.
  • Never share your user or log in with anyone except your teacher and parents.
Grading:

  • Each group will be graded according to their participation, accuracy and collaboration. The grading rubric is available on the wiki.
  • Additional credit will be given for editing other’s notes and adding examples. I would like everybody to participate in this throughout the grading period; therefore, a maximum participation grade for this will be set.
Permission:

Before you child starts posting to the classroom wiki I am asking that you and your child discuss the information and then sign and return the following form.
Thank you,

Mrs. Walls

  • When posting a comment in response to a classmate’s post, be sure to use constructive criticism, with a sound basis and support for your argument.
  • If any inappropriate content or someone outside of the group posts such material, someone must report it to me ASAP.
  • These comments will be deleted immediately and the following procedure will take effect:

-deletion of the post and temporary loss of blogging privileges

-permanent loss of blogging privileges and referral to the school administration
5. Once logged in, students must begin by responding to my question based on the assigned reading:
  • Responses must be a solid paragraph.
  • Must include one direct quote from reading (with proper citation).
  • Must include a quote from a literary review of the work, with citations and hyperlinks.
6. Once complete, students are required to comment on another student’s response. He or she can build upon the response, agree/disagree with a statement or pose a question to the author.
7. Lastly, students must pose a question related to the reading. Questions can focus upon a significant event, something that needs clarification, or a topic that has not been addressed yet.
8. Students will add the other team’s blogs to their RSS feed in Google Reader (previous assignment).

Assessment: All responses will be graded according to the rubric provided.

Permission Letter:

Dear Parents:

From now to the end of the year students in AP American History class will be using a classroom blog to reflect and analyze the history that they are learning about. Each new entry has its own date and each entry has a comments section where visitors to the blog may leave comments for the author.

How it Works

Each week I will be posting questions for the students to reflect and answer about something they are studying or posting documents that the students must read and then post an interpretation of the document to improve analytic skills necessary for the DBQ component of the AP exam. Students must also comment on at least one entry made from another classmate. I will also be making comments on the students work as well.

Security

This blogging project is designed to minimize risk to your child. The only personally identifying information included in the blog will be their first name. There will be no mention of our school name or our location. Students are allowed to post their interests and opinions, but not their age, email address, photographs of themselves, or other sensitive information.

Assessment

The weekly blog assignments will be part of your child’s homework grade each marking period. As with other projects, students will receive a scoring rubric that explains the expectations for these assignments. The rubric will include a section for the comments they leave in other students’ blogs.

Lesson Plan

Background info: The Leadership and Resiliency Program (LRP) is targeted to students identified as at-risk, usually working in groups of 12 or less. The focus is on helping students develop healthy positive relationships, learn to set and achieve goals and develop their personal competencies into coping skills. These are accomplished through service learning activities, adventure activities and a weekly student led/teacher assisted Resiliency Team Meeting. This is a lesson plan to be included in one of the Resiliency Team Meetings.

Objective or goal of the lesson
Students will be able to use criteria to determine whether or not a photo or video is appropriate to post online for both a) school purposes and b)personal use

Technology which will be used (blogs, wikis, RSS, Flickr, etc.)
Any tool that allows posting of photos or videos

Brief explanation of how the technology will be used
Students participating in LRP frequently take photos and videos of their activities with cameras and phones. Students are encouraged to keep journals and to write news articles, (either print or online versions) about their activities to share with the community.

Process or steps for teaching
  1. 1. Each student selects and submits a photo s/he has taken at an LRP activity in the last month that could be considered to include in an online blog or news article. The student writes a proposed caption and set of tags for the photo.
  2. 2. Each selected photo is printed in an 8 x 10 format and a mock-up “photo stream” that includes the captions and tags. These are posted on the classroom wall or bulletin board.
  3. 3. The class divides into teams of 2 or 3 and each team is assigned a role. Each team evaluates the “photostream” from that perspective. Roles may include:
    1. a. A student in the photos
    2. b. A parent
    3. c. A stalker
    4. d. A school administrator
    5. e. A community leader
    6. f. A potential employer of one of the students
    7. 4. Each team must consider the following questions:
      1. a. What information can you gather from viewing the photos, captions & tags?
      2. b. What criteria did you use to evaluate the photos?
      3. c. Would you exclude any photos? Change any captions or tags? Why
      4. d. Would you place any conditions on using any of the photos?
      5. 5. Each team reports to the whole class their results and leads the class in a discussion related to the criteria they used and final decision regarding whether or not to use each photo and what conditions they would place on it if it were used.
      6. 6. If it hasn’t come up already in discussion, the class should get the school’s existing policy on posting photos and determine whether or not each photo meets the policy requirements.
      7. 7. Students develop their own code of conduct for the class for posting photos or videos on their own social media sites.
      8. 8. Students review the existing school policy and propose any corrections or additions they think should be made along with their justification for the changes. The group can decide together whether they want to pursue formally proposing the changes to the policy.

Description of what behavior is expected of students
Students will consider other perspectives than their own in viewing web-based
Students will abide by the school policy as well as the classroom policy they develop together
Students will report any violations of the policies to the LRP group/teacher

What actions you will take and how you expect your students to respond if they find inappropriate content
If a teacher finds or a student reports a posted photo they feel violates either school or class policy, the following steps will be taken:
  1. 1. Discuss the issue with the person posting the photo to see if s/he is aware of the violation and ask the photo to be removed or edited so it does meet policy
  2. 2. If the posting student is reluctant to do so or feels they are abiding by the policy, the issue goes to the class for discussion
  3. 3. Teacher retains ultimate authority to do what s/he determines is right
  4. 4. Continued violation results in an unsafe learning environment and the offending student will no longer be allowed to participate.

Permission Letter

Dear Parents:

Congratulations on your student’s selection to participate in the Leadership and Resiliency Program. S/He was nominated because someone sees leadership potential in him/her and thought this program would be a good way to help him/her grow.

There are three main components to Leadership and Resiliency Program. Student will be participating in adventure activities to help challenge and stretch them and understand how to channel teens’ natural need for risk-taking in positive ways. They will work on service learning activities, utilizing their talents and abilities to help those less fortunate than them while learning about their own strengths and coping mechanisms. Most importantly, they will meet weekly in Resiliency Team Meetings to learn more about the type of leader and person they want to become.


Self-reflection and communication are critical pieces of the Leadership and Resiliency Program. Every participant in the program including the teacher and the students plays an important role in making sure that our learning environment is both physically and emotionally safe. Confidentiality and trust are essential to this environment. Students will be using a variety of tools to document their activities, report their successes and lessons learned and reflect on how they have grown through this process. Some of those tools are online. Each student will keep an online journal called a blog where information can be shared with others in the class. Students will also take turn writing news articles about Leadership and Resiliency Program activities that will be posted in our school’s online newsletter. Confidentiality and trust will need to be maintained in the online environment as well.


For their journals, students will write a private entry about what they have learned and experienced each week. They may include photos and videos if they wish. Each week, students will have the opportunity to volunteer to have their journal entry edited and posted on our class blog. Parents are also invited to visit the blogs and respond to the writing. Potentially, anyone on the Internet could respond to our blogs, however, it is not likely that the world at large will stumble across them. Obviously, there are differences in what is acceptable in a private journal and what is posted online for others to read. In order to preserve the confidentiality and trust in this class, the following procedures will be followed by ALL class members:


This blogging project is designed to minimize risk to your child. The only personally identifying information included in the blog will be their first name. Students are allowed to post their interests and opinions, but not their age, email address or other sensitive information. Photographs may be posted, but no names or tags (key words for computer searches) may be included. These rules are consistent with our school’s internet use policy. In addition, students will be expected to abide by the code of conduct that they have drawn up for themselves. That document is attached. Before your child may start posting to their blog, we are asking for you and your child to discuss and sign the following form. Please return the form to your student’s Leadership and Resiliency teacher, _.


Blogging and Media Terms and Conditions

1. You (the student) will edit your work to be posted to our blog. You are expected to act safely by keeping personal information out of your posts. You agree to not post or give out your family name, password, user name, email address, home address, school name, city, country or other information that could help someone locate or contact you in person. You may share your interests, ideas and preferences. Articles written for our local school online newsletter may include the school and city names, but no other personally identifying information, consistent with the blog expectations.


2. Students using blogs agree not to share their user name or password with anyone besides their teachers and parents. You agree to never log in as another student.


3. Students using blogs are expected to treat blogspaces as classroom spaces. Speech that is inappropriate for class is not appropriate for your blog. While we encourage you to engage in debate and conversation with other bloggers, we also expect that you will conduct yourself in a manner reflective of a representative of this school.


4. Student blogs are to be a forum for student expression. However, they are first and foremost a tool for learning, and as such will sometimes be constrained by the various requirements and rules of classroom teachers. Students are welcome to post on any school-appropriate subject.


5. Students blogs are to be a vehicle for sharing student writing with real audiences. Most visitors to your blog who leave comments will leave respectful, helpful messages. If you receive a comment that makes you feel uncomfortable or is not respectful, tell your teacher right away. Do not respond to the comment. We will start as a teacher moderated blog until the teacher determines that the threat of inappropriate comments is slight.


6. Students using blogs take good care of the computers by not downloading or installing any software without permission, and not clicking on ads or competitions.


7. Students who do not abide by these terms and conditions may lose their opportunity to take part in this project. Repeated offenses may result in them no longer being allowed to participate in the Leadership and Resiliency Program

I (_do) (_do not) (check one) give permission for (student’s name) to be included in photos or videos posted to the Leadership and Resiliency Program’s class blog and to the online school newspaper. I understand that no names or tags will be used in conjunction with the photos.


I have read and understood these blogging terms and conditions. I agree to uphold them.
