Protocol Overview and Instructions:
Within this technique each student creates a “poster” of what their proposed solution to the driving question would be.
Afterward, the posters are displayed around the room and either the educators lead a discussion with the students of what similarities and differences there are between the different solutions the students proposed or students in teams discuss the similarities and differences between their own ideas and
Poster Session Instruction
Students felt the poster session was a great way to see what everyone else was proposing for a relay. They could read what each events were. Additionally, I had students present their posters with persuasion why their relay would be the most fun to end the year! Students struggled with minimal guides on the poster, but were proud of their efforts. Next time, I might give less of an outline to help push the creativity!
"Our poster session helped students see what others were planning. They were excited to share the events they had planned and how they would make it to the next level. There was voice-and-choice over how they could showcase their relay but also have a format to help everyone look at it in a different fashion."
"I think the poster session is a great way to see what my friends came up with. I liked that we all were able to show our ideas differently."
Meet the Educator:
My name is Erin Carmody, and I teach 7th grade PE, 8th grade Health, and 8th grade Guided Academics at Lakeshore Middle School in Grand Haven, Michigan. I have been involved with futurePREP’d since the summer of 2013 in iChallengeUth, iChallengeU, Watercooler Session, PREP’d 2020, and FUZE/Unite4Insight. These amazing experiences inspired me to get my masters in learning design and innovation in 2017 (Go Waves)! I enjoy the process...particularly investigation and ideation. I’m looking forward to learning alongside you and growing our PBL experiences!
"The creative sequence allows for creativity to flourish and reach beyond typical ideas. Each protocol helps build, challenge, and expand upon learning! It truly helps learners dig into what they’re doing and showcase all the possibilities."
