This is a group or individual project to summarize and compare information about the 13 American Colonies. Each group needs a large poster board for the final project.
Many teachers use rubrics for grading and these have been provided for each project. They can be used to grade the end product, or for students to use as a guideline so that they know what the expectations are for success. The rubric is designed a little differently than most, as descriptors have only been written for the 1, 3 and 5 on the 5 point scale. This was done to leave the teacher a little “wiggle room”, the 2 and 4 is what is in between in the description and can be left somewhat subjective.
Also included is a grade sheet using points, which some teachers prefer to use. Each section is graded separately and paragraphs are broken down into 10 point chunks for easy calculating. There is one map, but each section has separate points.
