North Lawndale College Prep Charter HS, 2010-2011 Senior Project: Reflection after Expert Meeting/Next Steps Ian Taylor, Laure Gruber, Tim Bouman and Barry McRaith It’s been a busy few weeks! You have now chosen a topic, written a driving question, and created a topic map and a Prezi, all while working with your English teacher and your mentor. Today you had a chance to present your work to an expert. As you prepare to move forward, take a few minutes first to reflect on this experience and answer all the questions below: Name: Driving Question: Expert’s name and title/job: 1.) In general, how did the meeting go? 2.) Did you feel prepared? What aspects of your presentation did you feel good about? 3.) If you could re-do the meeting, what, if anything, would you have done differently? 4.) Was meeting with the “expert” helpful? Why or why not? 5.) As a result of your conversation with your expert, how do you understand your topic/question differently? 6.) What are some questions you still have? NEXT STEPS: Before we begin the next phase of doing our research, we will first re-work our Prezis to reflect what we learned today and how our thinking has changed. Please list below all additional information, leads, and ideas that were generated during your meeting today that you will add to your Prezi: Dead ends: Finally, as a result of the conversations you had today, and after reflecting on them, what are some dead ends you believe should be removed from your Prezis? Why? Good work today! Before you leave, please save this document and post it on turnitin.com. Be sure you have a copy as well—send it to yourself by e-mail, print it, or take it off of turnitin.com later… Your updated Prezi is due Nov. 30th.
