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

Summary: A group of students has been chosen to help create the classroom time schedule for the school year. The students will have to use the parameters set forth by the teacher and principal, as well as their own expertise about how they learn best, to create a schedule for the school day that includes all subjects and works around time set aside for lunch and special areas. Then the students will have to adapt the schedules they created to accommodate additional considerations by the teacher and principal. This MEA will require students to use their math skills to measure time intervals and their ELA skills to write a letter justifying and explaining the schedule they created.

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.
