PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Set includes lesson plan and guidelines for implementation, 2 data sets, 2 reading passages, letter template, and rubric for grading.

Summary: In this model eliciting activity, students are asked to help the International Olympic Committee choose the best host city for the 2024 Summer Olympic Games. Students are provided with data about three applicant cities and then must rank the cities and write a proposal to the IOC explaining their rankings. At the end of the MEA, the students will write an opinion piece for the International Olympic Committee that tells their final decision about which city would be the best choice to host the Summer Olympic Games in 2024.

MEAs are open-ended, interdisciplinary problem-solving activities that reveal students’ thinking about the embedded concepts. MEAs resemble engineering problems because students work in teams to apply their knowledge of science and mathematics to solve open-ended, realistic problems, while considering constraints and tradeoffs and clearly documenting their thought process. MEAs follow a problem-based, student centered approach to learning, where students are encouraged to grapple with the problem while the teacher acts as a facilitator.
