Instructions for writing prompt and rubric. The prompt itself states, "Question/Prompt: Some people believe that World History is not important or relevant to their lives, after your experience from this class explain how you know this is untrue. Use at least 3 examples from this class to explain your answers and reasons."
I have often used this at the end of the school year when I want students to think back over everything we have covered. I have used this as snow day assignments, extra credit assignments, and regular in class assignments.
The rubric makes it very easy to grade and it makes students think about HISTORY!
