There are several components to this document that can be utilize to demonstrate student mastery of learning.
First there is a generic choice board of project based learning that students can choose from to complete a mini project over any historical event of the teachers or students choosing.
In addition there are 2 rubrics to help grade the projects as well as give students the exact expectations for the assignment.
Lastly, there is a detailed Mini Project Choice Board over Latin American History.
Project based learning is a great way to see the whole picture of a student's comprehension; furthermore, you are allowing students a bit of autonomy because they get to showcase how they want to present their understanding to you!
Additionally, these projects align perfectly with Common Core!
