I have what I call an “Enrichment Center” in my classroom. It is where I send kids when they are “bored,” intellectually unchallenged, or needing extra credit.
I believe both English Language Arts & possibly history teachers can use this (I am an ELA teacher).
There are multitudes of ways you can use this system:
• Mandatory research project (once per term, perhaps)
• Extra credit
• Extension/enrichment for kids who finish early
• As a replacement assignment for a child who has already mastered a skill you’re working on
• Whatever you can think of!
You can use these charts as is or adapt them. I find that kids are interested in many of the topics I’ve chosen.
I emphasize that kids should put together a works cited page, regardless of what kind of topic they use. Use it according to your classroom procedures!
This is ready to print and use in your classroom!
