IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS! : PBL project "Creating a SuperStore" for ESOL, ELA and Math

(1)
SWBAT: Learn vocabulary on items found in stores Research prices for items Decide prices for different store items Create a super store using a marketing and design plan Use flaming text, cool text or other apps to create store "marketing material " such as signs Use PPT, Pixie, Dreamweaver, or Drawpad to determine the best tools for graphic design Follow the model provided. ** I did this lesson in two weeks, 50 mins to 1hr at a time. Day 1: I showed the model first, explained the vocab in it, and the purpose of the lesson. I also did a driverthrough of the technology to be used. Showed them the rubric, self-monitoring checklist, and assigned partners when needed (differentiation, ELL) Day 2: Reviewed, then modeled again how I use the vector art (or draw pad art) to create the rectangles, ovals, and other shapes that make the illusion of a department store. They can already be at the computer working along. Day 3: I focus on vocabulary only, asking students first if they can recognize or attempt to pronounce the L2 words. Then we look for clipart of each word as we discuss it in the L2. Day 4: Leeway day: Work on what you know so far. Look for preliminaries and how the students are understanding the project. Day 5: Lesson on pricing, how it changes, and what costs what....and why. Exercises include conducting scavenger hunts of the same items sold in different locations and compare prices. Discuss price fluctuation. Discuss inflation. Discuss "budgeting". Why is it important? What are solutions to be prepared for inflation? Day 6: Assigning prices. Showing a picture of a typical mall ask the students to "window shop" and assign value to the things they see. Day 7: Marketing: How to promote an item, whether cheap or not? Lesson on marketing styles and examples of most popular marketing campaigns. Include: IKEA, Macy's, ETC.

This is a Spanish assessment (can be pre/post) where students are asked the very basics for Spanish survival and keep track of what they know. You can base up to 10 lessons out of this, so that then you can come back and test. It is mainly for elementary Spanish, or for very early beginners.

You will have fun filling out this board. Students have to think hard of objects, persons, places, foods and other things that begin with the SAME letter that the teacher chooses from the alphabet. They get limited time to fill out each category until the first person finishes- then everyone has to compare their answers. Great way to see how they think!
