Product Description

The research process can be demotivating for students, which is why I created this project to spark student interest and engagement all through the highly engaging topic of infamous criminals!

In this project, students will research the life of a famous criminal and compile a bibliographic research project to share with the class. Please note that I have included lists of criminals for students to choose from and have purposefully left out serial killers, terrorists, and mass shooters. You may choose to allow these at your own discretion. The criminals included in this project range from fraudsters to gangsters and from pirates to drug lords. There are plenty of options here to captivate the interest of secondary students.

After selecting a criminal, students will compile an annotated bibliography as they go through the research process while preparing to create their final projects. Students can choose from the following project options via the "Research Project Choice Board":

--Blog

--Podcast

--Dramatic Play

--e-Book

--Movie

--Traditional Research Paper

There are plenty of options here to allow students the opportunity to share their research in today's technologically connected world. After students complete their projects, they will share them with the entire class and then reflect back on the research process.

If your students loved the Bespoke ELA Jack the Ripper Unit or the Bespoke ELA Lizzie Borden Unit, then they will love this assignment as well!
