Final Project (45 minutes) > Print/View All Notes
The final project is a written assignment that gives students a chance to show what they have learned over the course of the lesson. Go over the three writing assignments and review the rubrics with students before they begin. The projects are online and on page 16 of students' Engineering Portfolios. Students should choose one of the assignments to complete. As they write, encourage students to refer back to information they recorded in their Engineering Portfolios. You may also consider setting up an outline together to help guide their writing process.
