Product Description
This packet is a complete independent research project in which students will sign up for a person in history who interests them. Their due dates will be based on the figure they choose, so that they will each be ready to present their essays to the class when their chosen figures appear in the text. In essence, they will become our class "expert" on the day when they present their essays and research to their peers. Since the presentations are staggered, they will not take up a significant part of the class at any given time. This packet contains the student handout which explains the project, the list of figures and corresponding due dates, an essay outline format for students to use as they plan their essays, and the rubric for grading the final essay. Since the documents are Word documents, they can be modified to fit any teacher's curriculum by replacing the listed historical figures, changing the due dates, or adding additional criteria or parameters.
