Capstone Project Title
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.
