World History Art Poster Project
My students need a laptop to be able to see images, text and other media when we are using the data projector.
We are a college prep charter school that focuses on project-based learning and we are also digital. Our students have netbooks they can use to browse the Internet. However, the netbooks are not sufficiently powered to project wide enough for all students to clearly see from the back of the class.
We are a publicly funded 9-12 project-based learning school that focuses on college preparation and digital technology.
Our student body is just over 500. Many of our students will be the first in their family to attend college and are at-risk youth.
We need a laptop to connect to our existing data projector so that students will be able to read text that is presented, view historical pictures, see historical clips and give presentations during their presentations of learning for their world history project. We don't need anything extravagant; however, the students in the back of the class must be able to see the projection so we need at least 1024x768 projection capability. As a digital school, our students interact with technology on a daily basis.
The world history art poster project is the first project of four that our students complete.
In this project, students analyze revolutionary movements such as the French Revolution, the American Revolution and the Glorious Revolution and compare their causes to a more recent revolution of their choosing. They create a poster which synthesizes evidence they have gathered in their research about their revolutionary movement and then share this information with the class in a presentation.
