In this project, students work in groups (can be modified to an individual project) to create a graphic novel based off of one of the Cold War proxy wars.
This file include a rubric for the final graphic novel as well as team work rubrics that students can use to "mark" their group members. I personally use those marks as a participation mark for the term, but you can use them as formative also.
List of proxy wars included, can be added to based on your class's needs.
Links to 2 videos explaining how to create a graphic novel also included. Videos can be incorporated into class time/lessons or you can flip the class and have the students watch them at home before you introduce the project to give them some background knowledge and inspiration.
This is an editable word document file. Some formatting changes may occur depending on what version of Word you have. Also available in a non-editable PDF version in my shop
