Final Presentation - Cardboard Chairs
Ed Goldman believes in Authentic Assessment. To end the Cardboard Chair unit, he has students give a final presentation where all team members present part of a planned talk to the rest of the class. This events is also attended by adults from outside school who give feedback to students, while Goldman and the team's classmates complete written evaluations the group's work. From the professionals, students often hear the same things Goldman says about various aspects of their design work.
