PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an ambitious project that I use for my Great Depression unit. It is very student-centered in that the students are doing almost all of the learning on their own with the instructor as the facilitator - assisting with the creation of the website (I usually give a 15 minute tutorial for Weebly, which is a free educational website creator), clarifying and interpreting information when necessary, and assisting in any other way needed.

The instructions come with a numbered checklist that breaks down each individual aspect of the "visual essay." The back of the sheet has corresponding numbers that describe each item more in-depth, gives whatever other requirements needed, and how many points each section is worth. The categories that I include are:

1. Written History
2. Primary Source Evaluation
3. Examine Photographs Critically
4. Interpret 1930s Art
5. "Create-Your-Own"
6. Interview
7. Map evaluation
8. Graph evaluation
9. Video
10. Quotations

The goal is that after a student has spent the two weeks working on this project, exploring this era in U.S. history on their own they will have a complete, deep, and complex understanding of The Great Depression.
