Resource Description
Notes/Observations/Constraints/AdviceThis resource describes snapshot style poster events that align with the problem definition phase of a student project. Snapshot style events can be used several times throughout the project and key milestones. This resource focuses on establishing the venue for effectively assessing project status in a time-efficient manner. It does not offer a standard rubric, only guidelines on what should be included in student posters. There is an optional "hat" strategy for focusing student feedback.
