Methods of Implementation:
Prior to the simulation, students participate in several activities in the classroom as they get ready for the simulation. The simulation takes place in Citrus Heights, approximately 100 miles west of Truckee. After returning, the students will do debriefing activities in the classroom and technology lab at school.
Measures of success or achievement:
1. The teacher is able to measure the success of the program at the simulation, both through listening to the students comments and observation.2. After the simulation, the students will be doing both a writing activity and a technology project. These will both show the level of students' understanding of the basic concepts.
How does this grant tie into your PLC:
As a team member of our grade level (5th grade), I will share in the preparation of the field trip, setting up of the prior activities, and help in any way I can.
