Integration, integration, integration. This project integrates social studies, reading, writing, and technology into a two stage project. Students will use a word processing program, like Microsoft Word, a presentation program, like PowerPoint, and a brochure creation program, like Publisher, as well as the Internet in order to complete this project. They will choose to research one of the nine important Americans that are required for 3rd graders in Georgia: Paul Revere, Fredrick Douglass, Mary McLeod Bethune, Susan B. Anthony, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt, Lyndon B. Johnson, Thurgood Marshall, or Cesar Chavez. With their research, they will create two different, but connected projects, one informational and the other persuasive. The multi-stage project works on a wide range of research, language arts and technology skills. Originally designed for third grade, this project can easily be adopted for older students. Includes teacher grading rubrics.
