In this summative assessment, students become the teachers as they research and present information regarding a selected topic regarding colonial life. Using both books from the library and internet resources, students research in depth a particular self-selected topic (options are given) and create a brief lesson plan to describe what they are going to do to teach the class the information. Examples include, but are not limited to Power Point presentations, posters, and plays. After the presentations are given, students are required to create and hand out a brief assessment to the class to make sure their students learned the information that was presented. Throughout this process, students are also required to create a documentation board. They will take pictures throughout the learning process and put them on a board (or a large piece of construction paper) and write labels on each to document the learning that took place throughout this assignment. These become great visuals for the classroom, and coordinate with the Classroom Presentation Poster. Students end up taking ownership for their learning and creating dynamic presentations and opportunities to learn from their peers. This document includes; project description, rubric for assessment, brief lesson plan outline for students, and a work outline for students to keep track of their progress.
