Perfect for any subject for a biography project or Black History/Women's History. A complete student and teacher guide for a report to meet informative/explanatory Common Core standards. Aimed at 7-9th and may be appropriate for 6th or upper high school. A general requirements handout is organized into steps and allows you to specify the topic, length, number of sources and other requirements. The packet also includes nine optional handouts to supplement the general project requirements. All handouts provide helpful, explicit examples.
Great for a cross-curricular project in ELA to collaborate with another subject. Every aspect of the project from start to finish is clearly described in detail and designed for student success.
The general project description features 9 steps:
* choose a person
* evaluate source credibility (a Common Core Standard)
* complete a pre-writing organizer
* write the draft--includes a detailed outline
* revise and edit
* type the final report in MLA format

The optional handouts which supplement the steps are:

The required topics are early life, accomplishments, extra interesting facts, and personal opinion. The outline of the draft follows an intro (lead and thesis), four paragraph body, and conclusion format. Examples of lead, thesis, topic and conclusion sentences will help students succeed in writing a quality piece. Tips for avoiding plagiarism and examples of an original source with a re-write are also provided. The editing/revising checklist, rubric, and quick assessment checklist can be used for student self-evaluation, peer feedback, and/or teacher grading.
