PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This project was created to meet the needs of 3rd grade S-BAC Performance Task preparation, but would work well for a 4th or 5th grade students. Though this is written as a group project, older students could easily complete the entire project on their own. Teachers will need to gather books and websites for students to use for research purposes.

This sheet contains all of the instructions that students will need to complete their project. Learning targets and Common Core standards are also identified. I copy this back to back and staple into a folded large piece of construction paper (one for each group). They will keep all of their project work in this as it is completed. Also I have them bring this to check-ins so that they can share what has been accomplished and by whom. In addition to the project sheet, I have included a Leadership picture with a definition to introduce this project and get kids to brainstorm ideas around what makes a leader. I hold daily lessons and discussions around leadership and particular leaders for 20 minutes prior to working on the project for 30 minutes.

What's included on the project sheet?

Students will work in groups of 3 to:
* research and gather notes on a chosen leader (MLK, Susan B. Anthony, Cesar Chavez, Abraham Lincoln, Pocahontas, Rosa Parks)

*Write an essay in response to a SBAC-like prompt which requires them to write one paragraph telling what life experiences lead to their chosen person becoming a leader and also a paragraph about what he/she is known to have lead.

*Draw and color a picture of their leader and include a brief caption telling who he/she is and what he/she did.


Independently, students will:
*Choose either a narrative or an opinion prompts to respond to in essay form.


I've also included (on the project sheet):
*Extension activity for those early finishers :)

* SBAC-like scoring criteria for students to use as a self-assessment of their work.
