This is one of my favorite writing projects of the year! The students are always engaged every step of the way! I allow students to choose their country but I must approve it first. I also require at least one book as a research resource. Students are also required to sketch a map and a flag of the country they research.
I have included the following:
-Cover page (1 with only page border for students to create their own)
-Outline with report's required content (copies with and without clip art)
-Blank outline should students need help with outlining, it is new to them, you require them to outline or they simply want an easy way to organize their facts.
-Final draft paper
-2 report scoring rubrics (One aligns to common core)
-Flag and map requirements page
-Flag and map scoring rubric
