Capstone Project Title
U.S. History Curriculum Project Using Blended Learning To Improve Formative Feedback
Kennealy, T. U.S. History Curriculum Project Using Blended Learning to Improve Formative Feedback. (2019)
This capstone project leverages a 1:1 device classroom setting to create opportunities for effective teacher-to-student formative feedback. Classroom feedback is complex and proven effective but the practice of giving excellent feedback is rare, even for the most dedicated K-12 teachers. The implementation of effective feedback is rare but there is significant and specific research that identifies important characteristics and formats for offering effective formative feedback. A 1:1 classroom using blended learning offers opportunities to implement excellent feedback practices by allowing teachers more time for conversation with small groups of students. The curriculum project is a unit long exploration of traditionally marginalized groups pushing for access to their civil rights in post-WWII United States. The unit uses research supported techniques to include an on-boarding of digital literacy skills that helps improve students’ skill set before assigning complex assessments.
