ii. Research your question.
iii. Use multiple sources to answer your question.
iv. Choose an online source to demonstrate the answer to your question.
GUIDED PRACTICE (WE DO)
1. Hand out my informal rubric for them to grade me.
i. Explain that this assignment is out of 15 points and that each category is

2. Present my Prezi presentation to that class: https://prezi.com/p/tvmbepejkyee/
3. Discussion: Have the class share their thoughts on my presentation.
i. Did it ask a STEM related question? Was it informative and interesting to watch?
ETC.
4. Collect the graded rubrics.

INDEPENDENT PRACTICE (YOU DO)


1. I explain that we are going to start practicing getting familiar with STEM.
2. I ask the students to start thinking of a STEM related question.
3. We now have independent study time to begin our research for the remainder of
class. They are assigned to find three sources that hep them to understand their
question.
4. I make sure everyone is staying on task and assist those that need the help.
