Description

Product Description:

Your students will research one current event in depth and continue on with a project on that topic. They will work within the community, complete an authentic final product of their choosing (ideas available), and give an authentic presentation (ideas available). This project was designed using project-based learning principles - student choice, innovation, relevance to students, and impacts the community. The result is a student that is intrinsically motivated to learn, takes charge of their education, strives for improvement, and possesses the tools to problem-solve and think critically.

This resource is Google Apps™ compatible. It includes a printable AND digital version. The digital version can be assigned to students via Google Classroom™ where students can add content and share it with you. No printing necessary.

Note: The pdf is NOT editable. The digital version offers the option of overlaying text and images, removing slides, and add slides.

This product includes:

  1. Guidelines for teachers and students
  2. Brainstorming activity ideas
  3. Project planner
  4. Project proposal
  5. Project reflection
  6. Project rubric

Standards:

This resource is student-directed. In the project design process, students have the flexibility to add concepts or questions that they would like to explore. If you have specific standards that you need to cover, ask students to add those benchmarks to their project plan.
