11 students, 9-12th Grades with little experience in CS.
U3L14 - Interactive Card Project
This was a good chance for students to self evaluate where they were. I agree with previous statements about the planning guide and next time I’ll have it as an assignment (I generally have the students use the sheet as a guide for their own benefit, but this one seemed needed).
The buy in is the most difficult part for this lesson (and anything that students are able to creatively create as a final project).
These projects are difficult because it’s like grading a piece of artwork, it might not be very good but met the “requirements” and the student tried.
Similar experience to earlier where students that understood everything had great cards and were way ahead and students that were struggling were falling behind and those cards “just met requirements”.
With all that said, it was still a good point to stop, breathe and take inventory.
