College or high school STEM classesBenefit of Lesson Plan:
Helps students learn about STEM projects that excite them, while improving their research and communication skills. Thanks to AGU for supporting the piloting of this lesson plan.Summary:
Students choose a topic of interest to them, research & create a presentation about it, and enter it into RePicture.com. High quality work will be published (with the student’s name) for the world to see!What RePicture Offers:
• Unlike a typical assignment, students’ work may be published and shared with others worldwide on RePicture.com. If the project write-up meets quality requirements, the work will be published and the student shown as the “page owner”, which may motivate students to create higher quality work.
• Challenges students with a real-life problem that is common for STEM professionals - writing for a real audience. Plus, there is no limits to the work an exceptional student can do. The assignment can be completed by students of any ability.
• We provide a clear rubric for reviewing the assignment. You don’t have to be an expert in the area the student is studying in order to review their work. The RePicture dashboard also allows you to easily access all students’ work and comment on it online, where only the student can see your comment. Feedback: “This experience has been one of the best for my students. There is no other experience I could give them, in the classroom, where a grade could become meaningless if their work is not accepted for upload to the RePicture App”– Jason Ebner, Antioch High School, California
