This is a terrific unit project for combining and meeting standards in reading, writing, research, and speaking and interpersonal communications all at once. Originally designed for a secondary level comprehensive communications course unit in group discussion and problem solving, this Group Discussion Final Project can be readily adapted for used in any discipline such as health, street law, sociology, psychology, foreign language, etc.. Students (or the instructor) compose topics and questions relevant to the subject area, and after conducting research into their specific topic or questions, the students hold a graded group discussion in front of the class. Depending on the style of discussion used, student audiences may be allowed to ask questions of the panel members who are acting as experts on that specific topic. Assessments are completed not only by the teacher but also by the students themselves. Please contact me if you need assistance in streamlining this project to your particular area of study.
