This project was used with a bilingual class of Spanish speakers. Their content areas were taught in Spanish, and I was their sole English teacher. Most of them were reluctant to learn English, so I tried to engage them with interesting and fun lessons.
This package includes the project rubric, a sample completed project, and a list of ideas for helping students complete the project. Ideas include helping students research, summarize, and organize a simple paragraph so that it has a beginning, middle, and end. The project, as is, has students complete a paragraph containing 5 sentences. This can be changed for more advanced students.
This lesson uses the workshop model and has a checkbox for the teacher to circle which standards they are using in the lesson.
