- students will research Benjamin Franklin's 13 virtues and journal about what his virtues were and his process for attaining the virtues
- students will then work in partner groups using Google Docs to collaboratively brainstorm lists of their virtues and the rationale for each
- student partner groups will attempt to attain their virtues for seven days as Ben Franklin did. Each student will keep a journal log of his/her daily progress on the virtues.
- student partner groups will collaborate on a summary of their experiences.
We have a few things to work out in the next week to ensure that the project is going to work. Josh is checking in with the FHS tech coordinator to make sure his students will have access to gmail and Google Docs. All of my students and Jenni's students have Google accounts - Lee needs to make sure that his students finish creating Google accounts.
A little tweaking of the rubric and an outline of the project and our expectations is all that is left to prepare. The rest will be up to the students. I think I will try to arrange video chat introductions of the students sometime next week. I will also begin work on pairing up students. We will have some groups of three since there are more PPHS students that will be involved in the project than FHS students.
