This is a fully editable, 3-page document. After the cover page, the second page is a description of three different project options for students who are studying a colonial trade. Students have the option of:
-Creating a job wanted poster
-Writing a letter to their "Cousin Edward" in England about their trade
-Writing an informational essay about their trade
The third page is a rubric to assess your students' ability to integrate ideas from two or more texts on the same topic. There is a section at the bottom of the rubric for you to write comments and provide feedback if you wish.
I created this document to assess my students in the area of CCSS RL.4.9.
