Helping Students Apply for Graduate School

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Lindsay Annelin (Teacher (K-12)), Feb 27, 2013

I like that this particular lesson focuses on a goal-oriented topic.  Most kids will need to know how to apply for graduate school and this lesson plan focuses on just that.  I appreciate how it incorporates technology and can be more meaningful for kids to use.  This topic relates to students' lives and also is a user-friendly format. 

Kids will be able to navigate through the Prezi in a way that makes sense to the individual.  It is also a wonderful way for students to be able to resolve questions that they have about applying for graduate school.  I feel that this is a well-written lesson plan with a clear direction in mind.  It asks that students interact with materials and one another, which covers the social aspect of the lesson and also alleviates some of the pressure that comes along with such an overwhelming experience such as applying to grad school.

I like how this lesson involves a step by step process of how to apply to graduate school, which can be such a chore to many.  However, when integrating technology, it becomes more of an exciting experience and many questions will be answered.

Technical Remarks:

There are no issues and I think using Prezi and Google Docs is a wonderful way to integrate technology
