This is a cover that students will use in researching famous composers. This project is completed in groups and is suitable for grade levels 4-6. At the top of this sheet, it has space for team members to write their names and the name of the composer they are researching. Next comes the instructions of the project (usually takes 4-5 weeks of class time). This includes using the internet to research composers (approved websites listed), writing a paper, making a poster and choosing two other activities such as performing a skit, making a timeline, etc. In my classroom, I give students this sheet at the beginning of the project so that they can see the grading rubric at the bottom and have all the directions/expectations in front of them at all times.
