Exploring CS Vocabulary Assembly, Part 1

posted by: Mr. Bergquist 29 September 2011 No Comment

As a class, we be using Teamwork to assemble the definitions and details of the Vocabulary words we have been using over the past few weeks.  If we cooperate, each of us will only have to work on 2 definitions along with the help of another class member.  Here’s how it will work:

  1. Each of you will be given a small strip of paper with 2 words on it – start thinking of all we know about that word, its definition, characteristics, and how it is used in computer science.
  2. Go find the other class member that has the same 2 words, introduce yourself and you two will be working together.
  3. Sit down at a computer and work together to write in a single Word document the definitions for both your words including all we know about it and how it is used in computer science.  In other words, everything you would want to review for a test.
  4. Save the Word file in the (My Computer) S: drive under the folders embergquist > Writable > Exploring CS and name the file your two words, for example: “Binary-Megahertz”, and make sure to add both your names at the top of the page.
  5. And then we will go around the room and have each pair of students say their words and read out the details of their definition.  If anyone has additional information, that can be added to the class definition.
  6. We will then pick a student to assemble all your definitions into a single review page for us all.
