Start off by singing "Christmas time is here! Happiness and Cheer!" Get yourselves ready for the holidays because coming up we will be having a Christmas themed Economics Fair! This will be a time for you and your fellow students to Christmas shop for family members while also showcasing your personal creativity.
Students may choose what type of product they would like to market and digital tool they will use to create it. Students may choose to work at their own pace, as long as the rough draft is turned in by next Friday, October 20th. This is an individual assignment which allows each student to choose their resources and formatting options independently.
Students should start off by exploring the websites listed on the Materials Page of the presentation. Once a website is chosen, students should construct an idea of what type of product they want to create. Keep in mind this is your choice, but should be marketable. Students will be given daily classtime, 1.5 hours, to work on the assignments. I will be walking around to ensure that everyone is working and answer any questions you may have. Your rough draft is due next Friday October 20th.
Collaboration and Teamwork
Students may explore several different websites to gain an understanding of what type of product they want to create for the economics fair. These websites may include but are not limited to art gallery websites, youtube, magazines, or books.
Students may collaborate with each other and bounce ideas off of one another but this is an individual assignment. Students will be given individal grades for their created product. Students, although creating their product independently, will still collaborate in the selling of their product by using word of mouth marketing through friends, leadership skills and responsibilties of selling the product.
Teacher Coaching and Feedback
The teacher will be walking around the classroom to ensure everyone is working diligently and answer any questions students may have. After the rough draft is turned in, the teacher will provide feedback on whether or not the product will sell, if it is ready for sale or needs improved upon, and updates to grammatical errors.
Students will be asked to reflect at the end of the economic fair on their projects overall. The student should reflect on the product itself, its marketing skills, and the digital tool used in creation. The student should write a 1 page paper reviewing the project as well as provide feedback to the teacher on what they found the most difficult part of the project was.
A person digitally created a wallpaper and turned it into a HD image so that buyers can use it on a smart phone or computer.
Students will be asked to present their product at the economics fair and attempt to sell it to their peers. By presenting the student should be knowledgeable in the product they created and be able to explain the tools used to create it, their inspiration, and how it would be valuable to the purchaser.
