USING COMPUTER PROGRAMS TO HELP PLAN THE PROJECT

The Keeley Library also has a Microsoft Powerpoint template for planning a project. This can be copied on the students' disk, if desired, or placed on the Science lab computers. Microsoft grants site license for any of the items on the Teaching and Learning with Microsoft CD, which is owned by several teachers at Durfee.You can also use the graphics or drawing tools in programs such as PowerPoint or the drawing and painting tools in Clarisworks and other programs to create graphic organizers, and flow charts to help with your planning. You might also set up a table or timeline, which includes checkpoints at various intervals, to keep the project on track. This is usually a good idea when you have a long-range project.
