I do a two part unit on the American Revolution. Students complete projects that correspond with the objectives of the unit.
This project is in the style of a menu. For example, an appetizer may have four choices. Students only need to pick one. Each choice under the appetizer is a different way to demonstrate a specific objective. There are a variety of project choices using different methods of demonstration. Some choices require writing, drawing, or constructing. Other require the use of technology.
This has been tested and refined over the last five years. I hope your students find it as exciting and valuable as mine have.
