External Peer Review
Students' Essays Published
Twelve students completed an external peer review pod casting process on their speeches, went on to create final drafts, submitted them to NPR's "This I Believe" project, and were then published on the site's web page.
Students gathered and formatted information which was then published on Book Drum's reviewed website. In the future, these students' work could become reference material for an electronic version of the book.
Multimedia Research Projects
and
"A Thing I Carry" Letters Published
Why do we fight?
UBD and Project Based Assessments
In 2010, my creative writing class entered their web pages into the Poudre School District Student Media Technology Festival, and won.

We then went on to use the webpages to conduct a cross-campus peer review of a rough draft with students from another high school.

The following movie was recorded when my students spoke with a Technology for Educators class at Colorado State University.

I presented this video and information about the the effects of technology on audience awareness to the Poudre School District PDS Executive Committee on April 23, 2010.


Student Reflection
After working on the NPR Podcasting Project, I received this email from Cindi Campbell regarding the work I did with an ELA student. She outlines how the podcasting incorporated all four language domains that ELL students need in order to develop their English language acquisition proficiency.
Synchronous Blogging is a type of sheltered Socratic Circle which works well
when books are taught in isolation to a whole class
.

All students go to the computer lab and answer questions on a topic we have been discussing in class. Then, they also respond to one of their peer’s answers.

The anonymous nature allows for more engagement and relates to my teaching philosophy that the classroom should be a safe environment where each student feels comfortable, confident, and can therefore participate.

The true or false format, and the resulting escalating competitive responses, were developed based on information gathered from a conference on Best Practices.

The next step
is to use Google Hangout to record a non-sheltered Socratic Seminar and to have the observers create a real-time back channel using the chat feature.

Turn the volume up to hear a sample podcast from this project.
The example below is a concise five slides, made from only three images, that met all the requirements of the project. A student who never turned in written work in class created it.
A write up of this project was published on the National Writing Project's

The Scarlet Letter
In addition to the formal literary analysis, rhetorical analysis and research papers, it is important for me to find authentic audiences for my students:
Creative Writing
Freshman English
American literature
Students' Book Profile Published
Book Clubs
Booktalks Blog
I use Book Clubs to give students some choice in the text they read and a chance to learn collaboratively about literature. This has brought up engagement in sustained reading significantly.
I use booktalks to engage reluctant readers and to provide a way for students to find good books.
Research is a big part of academic life, and this project was created to explore how the massive amount of information available through multimedia can be used to justify and bring a new perspective to a claim. The students needed to relate their research to a book club book, and the videos were created along with a formal, cited written paper. Student engagement goes way up when using technology to access and display information in this way.

Any of these books can be taught in isolation to a whole class using a more tradition format as well.

Thanks so much for sharing these student movie projects. I loved the student reflections on why they chose their locations and how it relates to their story. Would it be okay if I shared these with Trevor?

Thank you so much for sharing [the student's] podcast. This is an amazing project that incorporates all four language domains (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) that our ELL students need to work on in order to develop their English language acquisition proficiency. I loved hearing [the student's] voice, and his story really touched my heart. Our ELL kids have such rich stories to tell--thank you for giving [our student] the opportunity to tell his.
-Cindy Campbell

Mr. Buteau has been my teacher for three classes. In my experience, he is a very patient person. In all the years I have had him, I've never seen him yell or talk disrespectfully to anyone. He has taught me more about myself as a person than any other teacher.
-Rachel Jahani
12th Grade Student
Fossil Ridge High School
The thing that I have noticed with [the two students] since being in your creative writing class is that they both, on their own, took the initiative to go to the library and check out a book for pleasure reading. I have also personally witnessed them reading on their own after finishing individual work in my class. I can honestly tell you that I have never seen the girls be this pro-active in any class, let alone read out side of being told to read.

Tommy understands that he has a finite amount of time with students, and he strives to have the greatest impact possible by taking into account where students are developmentally and intellectually...I rank Tommy in the top 5% of students I have had the honor to work with at CSU.
- Pam Coke

Tommy has been an integral part of bringing 21st century learning into the classroom, his department, and the entire building. Most importantly, however, Tommy has a very high level of integrity and compassion combined with his professional skills. He works to ensure that all students receive his best and are challenged to achieve their best.
-Mrs. Jeanne Findley

Watch to the end to see how he memorized this poem!
Cross-Campus Peer Review
Students in my class at Fossil Ridge High School posted their writing online, and students in Jason Clarke's classes at Fort Collins High reviewed them and offered advice on how to make the writing better via Google Forms. Along with Jason's students getting a taste of mentorship, engagement on the final revision was much higher in my class than ever experienced before.
Audience Awareness and Diversity of Perspective
& Cross-Campus Peer Review
Diversity
Supplemental books requested in order to allow me to meet the standards with an engaged, diverse audience.
In addition to bringing in personal experiences and stories from my time living and teaching in Nepal, South East Asia, India, Australia, and Trinidad and Tobago, I try to integrate diversity into my curriculum.
Implicit and Explicit Bias
In American Literature, students explore the concept of bias and write an argumentative paper incorporating their research on the topic. As a formative assessment, they also have a panel discussion on how bias plays out in their book and their research.
In Freshman English, students explore bias in Maus or The Book Thief, and then analyze how personal experience shapes perception while creating a personal essay.
Diverse Book Choice

Lit. Trips Project
This is an interactive Google Earth project originally done by Tara Oswald at Fossil Ridge High. It worked well with my ELA students in Malta.
3-Day
Understanding By Design
Workshop with Jay McTighe including year long follow-up on Unit Plans
ELA students recorded their recitation of a children's book as a screen-cast. They were able to reflect on their performance before reading the book to students in our kindergarten class.

They also wrote a reflection on the experience and posted it to our blog at http://buteauchildrensbooks.blogspot.com.mt/
