LA Final Project: Feedback for Mr. Bower

This blog post is for my students to provide me feedback about our language arts final project. Feel free to browse their responses - I found them both enlightening and entertaining.

Three questions:

1. Which better shows your reading, writing and thinking skills: a multiple choice exam or Show Your Thinking Project?

2. Which do you enjoy doing more: a multiple choice exam or Show Your Thinking Project?

3. Which is easier: a multiple choice exam or Show Your Thinking Project? Please explain.

48 comments:

  4. show your thinking project because it's better i think. It lets your mind tell people what you think so you don't have to answer questions that you don't think. If that make sence......

  9. I think it was pretty cool. I also think that the show your thinking project is a whole lot better. I also enjoy it alot. But, I do think that the multiple choice exam would be easier but I would learn less, cause I would probally guess.

  22. i think that showing our thinkng was defenetly the way to go less stressful and more productive because we chose a topic that intrested us.

    i defenetly enjoy showing my thinking way better than multiple choice

    multiple couch takes more efeort to focuas on and showing your thinking was esyer because all you do is write down your thoughts..

    Mr.bower i love you way of teaching and imma miss you

  27. 1. Sow your thinking
    2. this year I enjoyed show your thining
    3. Show your thinking. because if you think sopmething else then the 4 question's they give you for multipule chocie it doesn't really work.

    ReplyDelete
  28. i think the show your thinking is better because multiple choice is limited and wont shwo the teacher what you really think. i enjoy the show your thinking one because its more freedom. i think the show your thinking is more challenging than the multiple choice because you got to think more.

  29. 1 show your thinkign prject is better because we can do waht ever we want it is way more fun and i think waht we showed on our projects is way more than the multiple choice exam.

    3 shoqw your thinking becasue we can choose what we wnat to do. and when it is fun i think is easy.

  37. I would rather use show your thinking and do "Your thing" on paper instead of everybody doing the same thing. this is how the world should be! You're the best BOWER!

  38. i think this shows your learning way better than writing letter on a page, its shows what your thinking. i enjoy showing my learning more because you dont just have an answer you get to show what you think. And i thought this one was more work but it was worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  39. 1 I think showing your thinking is uch easer.
    2 Showing your thinking because u can pick what u wan to read and show were thinking.
    3 it was much easer and funner because it not just filling in a stipid budle.

  40. 1 The project
    2 The project
    3 I would say the project because all you do is read and then show your thinking.

  41. I think in a way Reading cannot be done without writing because somebody ahs to write a book so that somebody can read it right? If you show your thinking you can indeed hav more influenc on ones mind than what a average person can do with a multipul chocie exam.

    ReplyDelete
  42. 1 Show Your Thinking Project
    2 Show Your Thinking Project
    3 the show your thinking because you get to speak your mind instead of colouring dots

    ReplyDelete
  43. 1.i think showing your think project

    2.showing your thinking project

    3.the exam is easier because you look and write in down and for the project you have to really show what it is telling you

  44. Response to #1: Of course a "Show your thinking" project is going to show your thinking better. You are personally putting together slides or leaving comments on things. But with a simple multiple choice test, you're filling in a letter. Most kids probably guess. I could name a few.

    Response to #2: I enjoy the "Show your thiking project" more because you can relate things you're interesting in to what you're learning about. Like boyancy or something.

    Response to #3: I'd have to say that a multiple choice is easier than the project. Because with a multiple choice, you're simply filling in a letter. With the project, you have to show thinking, write about things, relate things to other things, and why it does this, and etc. BUT the project is more fun so it doesn't SEEM like more work.

  45. i think a multiple choice exam would be alot easier than asking questions on paragraphs but at the same time asking questions would show your learning better so i would have to say multiple choice exam but if i had more time to work on a project where i had to ask quetions i would rather do that.

  46. 1)This was a no-brainer. You don't even write in a multiple choice exam. Show your thinking project. FTW.
    2)I greatly enjoyed the show your thinking project it felt like your average Bower class, no stress with all the resources you could ever need a few strokes of the keyboard away.
    3)A Multiple choice exam is easier. But the challenge was refreshing and more important than that, not completely mindless like so many multiple choice tests. And it is because of this that I feel the need to thank you for letting us show our thinking, rather than shade in boxes.

    ReplyDelete
  47. and i would also enjoy a show your learning kind of exam more than a multiple choice exam.
