Define Stage: Advice and Tips

Use the Rubrics

The rubrics are great tools for helping students understand what they need to do for each deliverable. Some teams found it helpful to annotate the rubrics; others made copies for each team member to read individually and then discussed the rubrics as a group. Be sure to post the rubrics in a place that is easy for everyone to access. 
Make a Planning Wall
Create a common area to host all of your project plan charts and ideas so everyone can access the information. Some teams make planning walls while others share planning documents via Google Docs or in a 3-ring Team Planning Binder. As you create your deliverables, review the Competition Deliverables section of the site.
