A great project idea to increase student speaking & listening skills - the rubric and activity can be used for any historic period in a US history, ancient civilizations, or world history course
The overview can be downloaded and then uploaded to Google Drive and Classroom to give each student a copy of the directions and the rubric. I usually give students two days to research and prepare before starting the discussions. The discussions usually take 1-2 class periods pending on the size of the class. Teacher can use the rubric to provide feedback and score as students are leading the discussion.
