This is the assessment that I used after my expository versus persuasive essays unit. I use the project to access their knowledge of the differences, as well as a precursor to writing essays.
Students choose one of the topics (there are 5 expository and 5 persuasive) and work with a partner to create a multimedia presentation. Some of the topics have specific media requirements, otherwise it is up to the students to decide which media they use to represent their topic.
The duration of the project is up to the teacher's discretion.
