Work Plan 7

Opening

Before you begin work, take 5 minutes to write a plan for what you will do during the final work session.

  • With which of your classmates will you work?
  • What do you plan to accomplish in the work session?
  • What particular challenges have you risen to recently in this work, and what remains?
  • What areas did you identify as needing work in the last lesson’s activity? How will you address those today?

Open Notebook

Share your plan with the other members of your team and your teacher.

Exhibit Review and Revision

Work Time

Spend a few minutes exploring your own exhibit as if you’re a stranger to the material and try to anticipate your audience’s needs. Even subtle changes to your exhibit, like the wording on a placard or the placement of an object, can significantly change your audience’s perspective.

  • Review the elements of your exhibit and revise them as necessary. Pay particular attention to the flow of the story told by your introductory materials, placards, and concluding materials. You want your audience to walk away with a coherent experience and challenging new perspectives.

Exhibit Status Update 7

Closing

Before the lesson ends, assess your work for the day by answering these questions.

  • With whom did you work?
  • What did you accomplish during the work session?
  • Do you feel good about the final status of your exhibit?
  • What did you do to address the weaknesses you identified in the previous lesson?
  • What did you do to build on the strengths you identified in the previous lesson?

Write a reflection on your role in the process of creating the museum exhibit.

Use these questions to guide your writing.

  • Do you feel you made a strong contribution to the project? Why or why not?
  • Do you feel like your perspectives have evolved since you wrote your argument essay? What new perspectives do you have on being a Digital Native?
