This is the guidelines to an Interest-Based Project element I have made available in my Social Studies classes this year. I wanted to give more extra credit opportunities, and this one is great because it is open all year. Students get the chance to pursue things they learn about in class, and design a project around that interest. The best scenario is when students get to learn more about a career while connecting to the subject matter at the same time. Message me for example projects I have had kids create in class...they are awesome! Also, I included a proposal template as students are required to submit proposal for approval.
