Aligned to CCSS in reading and Florida Next Generation Standards in Social Studies, this project is geared toward first and second grade learners to research and/or read about an assigned African American who has made significant contributions to American society. This report requires the student to demonstrate effective speaking/listening skills in addition to written skills. The rubric provides a very detailed outline of expectations - which is aligned to Marzano.
From my own experience, this has been an amazing experience for the children, and they have enjoyed listening to their peers give presentations, especially when the expectations are clear to them and on their level. Enjoy!
