In the past, I have reached out to the world to complete a survey designed by my students in order to make it possible for them to collected authentic data. The overwhelming response from my blog readers and twitter followers made it possible to create a transformational learning experience for these students.
- 5th graders wanted to know different perspectives on one historical figure and used a survey to poll people from around the world of their perception of Christopher Columbus in history.
- Kindergarten students formulated questions for a survey to poll people to find out modes of transportation in different parts of the world.
It is time again, for you to step up and make it happen for another group of students. Be assured that your contribution by filling out the survey DOES MAKE an impression on these kids. They realize that they have a voice, that their reach extends beyond their own backyard or school community, others do care and take their
school work seriously and that their work is authentic and serves a real audience.
The 6th graders of my new school , the American School of São Paulo, Brazil, are in the process of creating tutorials. Part of the process of storyboarding and script writing is to write for an audience. Please take the time to submit the survey below (created by the students). The results are shared among all 6th graders and will inform their decision what type of tutorial they will create and share back to the world.
Thank you in advance!
