Today's student, more than ever, often find school to be boring and meaningless; however, by using a task that provides real-world relevance students are no longer passive but actively engaged in learning. Also the Common Core emphasize real world application of knowledge and skill and the development of the 21st century competencies such as critical thinking, communication in a variety of media, and collaboration. This project provides an effective way to address these standards.
Meeting of Cultures is a Problem-Based Project that could be used as an end of the unit assessment or as stand-alone project.
In this bundle I have included:
-the Task (the Project)
-Group Planning Sheet
-Activity Resources (include links to websites)
-Four Rubrics (Content, Written, Format, Audio)
-Common Core Aligned Math Activities (aligned for the Math Practices)
I have also included an editable and pdf file.
