INFOGRAPHICS in the classroom: rubric & student examples
In all of my first year undergraduate classes I assign Infographics as a way to engage my students in the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy. I always find this assignment rewarding for my students. It offers a helpful way to study, a different type of assignment, a way to engage visual learners, and I am usually surprised by their work. I sometimes have them work in groups of two.
While you may use this rubric and examples with any novel, you could have your students create an Infographic on To Kill a Mockingbird and use my examples from the Scottsboro Boys as both a model and an introduction to this famous case.
In order for your students to excel in this activity, they need to see examples and understand how they will be graded. Provided here is a rubric and five examples from my own classes.
Included in this unit are the following:
➢ A rubric that shows students what is expected in their finished product. It provides a colorful guide in the form of an Infographic created from Easelly.
➢ Instructions for students as a PDF.
➢ Instructions that I give my own students - in a partially editable interactive format using Google Slides
➢ Instructions for teachers.
➢ Student examples - I use student examples from previous semesters to help my class understand my expectations. There are five included here from first and second year University students.
➢This rubric package is ideal when teaching to Kill a Mockingbird as the Infographics deal with the trial of the Scottsboro Boys. This is an excellent trial to study alongside the novel as this real life case involved nine boys falsely accused of raping two white women.
