Is Global Warming an important issue to middle school students, and how will your project change their thinking about Global Warming?




iljs-fms6:
Yes, it is an important issue to middle school students because it's a major problem for the WHOLE world, not just the adults. We all live on the same planet with the same problem, so we should ALL care and want to help. It will change their thinking about Global Warming because before they see our project they might just think global warming is not going to do anything serious, or they might think there's no such thing as global warming, or they might have never heard of it before(very unlikely, but still possible). But after they see our project, they might start to become more concerned about it and want to help stop it, or they will find out that global warming IS real, or they will learn about it for the first time and then want to help. Basically, anyone who sees our project should want to help after seeing it because it should get the message across that: "GLOBAL WARMING IS REAL AND A VERY SERIOUS PROBLEM SO YOU NEED TO HELP STOP IT!"

Reflection:Question: Is Global Warming an important issue to middle school student, and how will your project change their thinking about Global Warming?

ANSWER: I think that it is a very important issue to think about because it may not seem so big right now but it could become a very big problem so we better do something about it now!! I also think that it's very important to middle school students because they can't do very much but they can research and learn some things about it to know what's going on!! I think that it's good that we are making this map story so that the other kids can see what's happening!!! Another thing is that Global Warming should be an important issue because it's happening in their time and it's happening or going on right now as we speak. It should always be an important issue until it's gone and over.

paca-fns6 April Anderson I don't think it is because I am more worried about getting a good grade than global warming. I think that my project will show people that it is a big deal like I did! I really hope that you will enjoy my project and learn from it, too!

Project Overview: Your Page on the Mapcasting Project will include:
  1. 4 Sections: A 3-paragraph introduction, a Mapcasts Section, Another Section that you define, and References list.
I've changed this, what I would like now is everyone to add one paragraph in front of their map, answering the question:
Is Global Warming an important issue to middle school students, and how will your project change their thinking about Global Warming?
References are still required.
  1. Find one Creative Commons image that highlights your topic taken from http://flickrcc.bluemountains.net.
  2. Your map tour made from Google Earth.
  3. A references section on the bottom. where each web page and image is cited in MLA format. You can create easy MLA citations from http://citationmachine.net.
  4. Creativity: include an interactive element or idea that is not included on this list. This could be your Section that your define.
  5. A completed Map Cast will have:
    _ at least 12 map points.
    _ Introduction and Conclusion.
    _ at least two sentences per map point of accurate information.
    _ at least 10 pictures or embedded videos borrowed and cited from the Internet.
    _ Quotations or in-text citations for each map point, telling us where you got your information ("According to www.history.com....")
    _ a references section or Works cited section showing all the websites that you used for information.
    _ at least 5 sources per person for the entire project including books, Internet web sites, magazines, TV shows, radio interviews.

DO NOT ERASE THESE DIRECTIONS UNTIL THE LAST DAY OF THE PROJECT.
