Supporting Successful Product Assignments Part 7 of 7

This is the seventh in a series of posts (1: Choices, 2: Parent Communication, 3: Research, 4: Thinking, 5: Planning, 6: Peer and self-evaluations) about supporting successful product assignments at the end of a unit of study. Now let’s talk about audience. If you followed my advice, students have already had a small audience of their peers reviewing them during the process and fresh small set of peers evaluating them during the finished product. Consider using gallery walks and inviting other students and parents to view. Or find a place you can display the products on campus with greater foot traffic. If students know that their product will be viewed not just by you and their classmates they are more likely to push themselves to create a quality product.
