Lesson Plan: Teaching the Lesson: Activity 4

Activity 4: Presentation Rehearsal

This process gives students an opportunity to go through their presentations and receive feedback from their peers before they make the presentation to the City Council. Based on his having conducted this project for a dozen years, Bill Mittlefehldt is in a position to provide sound advice to the student teams, including the fact that the City Council generally wants students to be very clear about what they want the Council to do. Distribute the Team Rubric and instruct the class to complete one sheet for each presentation, stressing that the purpose of the assessment is to provide team members with constructive criticism that can help improve their performance before the City Council. Students can hand these sheets directly to team members.
