I've been working on this rubric for years--the past 15--and this project has always been a favorite of many students over the years. I have always kept my rubric(s) for this project to myself. It's time to share it. Enjoy!
Student develop a history talk show (they decide the format style) and bring on historical figures for an interview. There are specific guidelines in the rubric that help to make student successful with their research and presentation. There are interactive elements of the project that makes the project presentation entertaining and enjoyable for the audience as well. I use this project as an End of Year project. Trust me, your students will love it!
