Week 9 we had to complete a slide from the Selection Principle: Emphasizing Figure and Ground. After reading the chapter, I felt that my slide had to be bold and eye-popping to get the information across to the students. This is an important part of our unit…the Field Book instructions. The Field Book will be a huge part of their project for the unit. I stuck to the 3 C’s in the chapter-Concentrated, Concise, and Concrete. I felt that my slide had all of these included in it! I choose to have a dark background so my red lettering would really be bold and stick out! My slide is easy to read and easy to understand. I also put pictures next to the text, just in case the students needed some visual for each numbered selection. I also felt that my information was to-the-point! I did not have a ton of information on the slide, but enough to get the idea across to the students.
I broke the information up into sections instead of just one big blob of information. I also made the text red so that the students eye’s were drawn to it! The pictures were also a fun part of the slide because most students can relate the text with the images and fully understand the directions for the Field Book.
I liked this week’s assignment because it gave me a way to relay the information to the students in a fun and exciting way! I feel that my unit is really coming along great and that this will be a great asset to my teaching.
