Discussion for Budgetting Lesson
Melissa Hocking (Teacher (K-12))
This is a great instructional design for a lesson. This lesson combines the use of technology with cooperative group work. In incorporates several types of technology with both Excel and power point involved. The lesson also relates to the real world and a realistic situation that they could encounter in real life. I think this scenarios for the project draw the students in so it is an engaging activity for them. The collaboration between students is also excellent. I would hope that tri-fold posters and brochures would not be involved but sometimes it is also good to break from technology as well.
No problems with links etc.

This is a great lesson that incorporates the use of technology to accomplish an important life skill, budgeting and organizing one's finances. The lessons objectives are clear and the method and evaluations allow a teacher to teach and asses multiple skill levels. The lesson provides real-life problems for the students to solve given more meaning to the learning. The technology needs are reasonable and I think students will be able to gain a variety of skills that can be applied to other subjects and life skills.
