Includef: Handout Instruction sheet for students and Rubrics to use for grading
This PowerPoint project focuses students on internet research (with MLA citation of direct quotes through bibme.org), animation, transitions, pictures and sound. The students pick at random for the decade they research (I let them choose from a candy dish). Students love this and learn a lot from it. I play music of the decades throughout the week, while they work in class.
21st Century skills are discussed throughout the project to remind students about Time Management, Communication, Meeting Deadlines, Following Instructions, and Presentation Skills (Although I do not have them present these to the entire class. I grade them from their computer screens.)
