The way I use it...
Kids enjoy this project! This is a 2-3 month project. It can be accommodated by making the changes in Word Document or simply handing out the graphic organizer to some students. Students enjoy the speech outline to guide them.
The student website can be created through many different sites for free. If this does not work for your class, you can have them draw their homepage.
The way I use the parent signature form is by putting it in with the grade so that the student makes the parent aware. Also, this is a way for parents to know about this project in advance and not the night before presentations.
