This project has been a class favorite for some time. I have used it both as part of a study of persuasive reviews and also a Social Studies project when studying our community.
Students are asked to visit a restaurant and report on their findings. (Just a note: they have already seen examples of restaurant reviews in class prior to the assignment.)
You may decide to eliminate the picture part of this project or make it optional. That, however, has ended up being a favorite piece of the project for many of the students.
I have also included a rubric to use for scoring your students’ reviews.
I hope your students enjoy this as much as mine have. Please let me know how it goes. I welcome your feedback!
