This project first asks students to research an environmental issue such as: Ozone depletion, acid rain, deforestation, greenhouse effect, etc. A planning sheet is completed by students and approved by the instructor prior to completing the project. This can be assessed for a grade or just feedback given (this would be up to the instructor). The project is then differentiated by choice. The newspaper article option has students working alone creating a newspaper article about their environmental issue. The game show option has students working in partners to create a powerpoint game show that the class will participate in. The public service announcement allows students to work in a small group to create a video. All project choices include having the students write 3 assessment questions about their project (I use these to quiz the students after the presentations).
A project rubric is included.
