An engaging assignment where students choose a topic that is relevant to their own needs as young people (such as sexting, driving, body rights, relationships, partying etc) and, guided by the solo taxonomy (Biggs & Collis, 1982), they become experts on the topic before presenting it in the form of a short mini-lesson to their peers. A challenging task with a focus on Critical and Creative thinking, this assignment provides a lot of autonomy, as students can not only choose their own topic to research, but they can also choose from the range of questions provided in order to focus their interests on what is most relevant and engaging for themselves and their peers. This assignment should take around 10x 50 minute periods (5-6 periods for conducting research, writing responses and planning their mini-lesson to present, followed by 3-4 periods to present their mini-lessons to the class and engage in class discussions afterwards. Can be used to research laws, rights and responsibilities for any state / country. This resource includes instruction sheet, marking rubric and peer evaluation sheet. Perfect for use as a summative or formative assessment task. I hope you enjoy using this resource! If you love it, please leave me some positive feedback!
