I look forward to this inquiry-based project every year! After studying transcendentalism or persuasive techniques, students work together to create their own school. I promise your students will be motivated and excited over the course of this project. It took me a few years to refine the steps, and I am attaching detailed work to make the project easy to implement.
This project includes the following:
1) Project overview sheet which includes all requirements for the presentations
2) Guided group sheet proposals
3) Daily progress charts for groups
4) Grade sheet
5) Peer evaluation forms
6) Teacher's notes and suggestions including objectives, lesson sequence, modifications, and my own reflections on how to make this project successful.
