This assignment is a Word document that is used on the computer with a drop box such as Blackboard, PowerSchool or School Space. It can be quickly and easily converted into a printable paper copy by simply removing the asterisks and adding lines for the students to write their answers instead of typing them. I use this format often so that we can save paper by using electronic copies of assignments.
The student answers the questions by placing the cursor between the red asterisks and begins typing the answer - that way they can easily see that they've answered the question and I can easily grade the assignment by reading what they've typed in red. A nice feature of assignments that are used on the computer along with a website is that the assignment can be 'pinned' to one side of the computer screen and the website pinned to the other so the student can see both the assignment and the website they're working from at the same time. I love technology!
This assignnment can be used by itself or used as the research to be added into a birth control brochure. The instructions for the brochure are attached to the 'You're An Expert!' assignment. The brochure can be created in Microsoft Publisher - which looks very professional when printed - or with construction paper. Guidelines and a rubric are included with the brochure instructions.
