Student Examples from
SG’s

Biology Class

Students choose two jobs from the field of biology to compare and contrast. Students
researched jobs using cell phones, tablets, and computers. Students produced two
rough drafts. Rough #1 was a a written script. Rough draft #2 was a revised script with
a rough version of their
educreations

video lesson. Each draft underwent
peer review
editing
. Students turned in a final draft and final
educreations

video lesson.
