Jennifer @jenfairbanks8 has set up a monthly blogging challenge described here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1bD-zYHpkP0RR7shkovBtOEB4c_rlSuiUKtJCQtid9QY/edit You should join! And if you’re just here to read, then I hope you get something out of it!
Somehow this post stayed in my drafts instead of being posted in February (when I missed the #MTBoS2020 post). Whoops! So here it is!
I’m still excited about this project my Geometry learners did a couple weeks ago. I had an extra day I could afford to try something in my quadrilateral unit and after some searching on the MTBoS Search Engine, I came across this Quadrilateral Instagram Project from Julia. https://designatedderiver.com/2016/01/27/instagrams-for-quadrilaterals-letmetellyouaboutmyshape/. I also found versions from Tina here and Jonathan here.
I pretty much followed their lead and left a lot of it open. All I gave was a short description and a rubric.

- Quadrilateral Instagram Project Rubric (.pdf)

You can see some examples in the posts below. 90% of the class got A’s – this was a project they were excited to do, they had to do a self-assessment before so that really they wouldn’t turn it in without having a 100%, and I was pretty lax on the requirements. Not all of them were works of art, but the learners had fun and were proud of it. I even had some that created real Instagram account.
I am always blown away by the creativity of my Ss any time I give a project. This is a sample of the Quadrilateral Instagram project I found from @JFinneyfrock here https://t.co/v9FHUo0XVg and also from @TinaCardone. Find a way to add this into your quadrilateral unit! #MTBoS pic.twitter.com/tZ755TPPys

J’espère que je peux faire des projets créatifs avec mes classes l’année prochaine.
