EDMU 525 Prezi of Science and Engineering Practices

Assignment Description

After reading about the eight science and engineering practices in A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices,
Crosscutting Concepts and Core Ideas that are part of the Next Generation Science Standards develop a presentation
using Prezi (a free cloud based presentation software tool) that introduces elementary school students to these
practices. Since the practices describe what scientists and engineers actually do as part of their work your intent with
the presentation is to explain what it takes for students to think like a scientist.
Your presentation should include the following content:
1. Identify each of the eight science and engineering practices
2. Use student friendly descriptors to explain each of the practices
3. Provide examples of classroom applications (what it would look like in the classroom if students were using
these practices)
Your presentation should adhere to the following design principles:
1. Organization- follows a logical sequence
2. Graphics- visually appealing graphics relevant to the content
3. Text- limited to key words and ideas

If you have never designed a Prezi before go to https://prezi.com/support/ or http://prezi.com/prezi-for-education/
to learn more. You can also view a video on Prezis for teachers at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8JMn6AiviQ
To submit your Prezi you can include the URL for the Prezi in a word document or type it directly into the comments
box.

Prezi Content Clearly identifies
and describes each
of the eight science
and engineering
practices and
provides examples
of classroom
applications
Adequately
identifies and
describes each of
the eight science
and engineering
practices and
provides examples
of classroom
applications
Partially identifies
and describes some,
but not all, of the
eight science and
engineering
practices and
provides examples
of some classroom
applications
Few, if any, of the
eight science and
engineering
practices are
identified and
described and few, if
any, examples of
classroom
applications are
provided or there
are inaccuracies in
the descriptions
and/or examples
