This project allows students in groups or individually, to explore world events that occurred after WWII (Cold War Period). Students create a multimedia presentation according to set of criteria, and write an essay on the topic. 17 topics are provided along with specific criteria and rubrics for teacher marking. Rubrics should also be shown to students prior to project to provide them with further clarity on what is expected. Topics are varied and interesting and students enjoy presenting these exciting events to the class.
