PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a group assignment. In groups, students will choose from a list (or alternative is acceptable with approval) of American authors. Together they will write an expository research paper detailing the life, works, and societal contributions of these authors. They must use and properly cite at least 3 sources in their paper. Then, they will take the information they learned in while researching their author and create a 5-8 minute presentation to be presented to the class. This is a great opportunity for students to learn about American authors in a collaborative and free thinking environment. A self-evaluation is part of this assignment. This is a chance for students to explain their contributions to the group work and an opportunities to alert you to any problems experienced while working in their group. A detailed rubric is also provided.

This assignment is good for English Language Learners as it gives them a chance to read, write, and speak in group and public settings. It's great practice. This assignment is also easily modified to meet the specific needs of each student.

Please feel free to alter this assignment in any way you see fit for your classroom and students.
