This is a complete package for a research project on United States architecture. I use this for my seventh grade art classes, but it can be tailored to a different grade level.
Included is an introductory project outline, research guidelines, two pages of graphic organizers (a web and Venn diagram), a list of themes in American architecture, tips for online research, explanations of two project components (written and creative), a checklist for check-in dates, and proposal with parent signature page. This makes for 11 pages of guidelines, research assistance, and project outline.
There is an annotated bibliography handout in my store that I use in tandem with this project.
This is a Word document, so you may tailor it to your specific needs by editing it accordingly.
I hope you find this helpful in meeting the Common Core standards. :)
**This is now a revised file that includes two rubrics: one for the written component and one for the creative component.
