Transfer the learning and ownership over curriculum to your students, with this highly engaging and exciting group project. Emebedded in the student expectations page is a timeline for production, directions, assigned group, and a clear rubric including components of quality, accuracy, presentation, collaboration, and organization. In this self-directed research group project, students will use the resources availabel to them in your classroom such as magazines, articles, textbooks, computers, etc. to develop a presentation in a format of their choosing such as a powerpoint, brochure, rap, play, poster, etc. The topics included are Cajuns, Creoles, Aative Americans, and the French. The expectation is that they cover food, music, norms, way of life, etc. Three exemplars are included for distribution to students if necessary of a different community so students can relate. This ties nicely to my Louisiana Cultures Exit Ticket Assessment as well as my Louisiana Cultures Guided Notes.
