Product Description
This resource is an excellent means of assessing students' understanding of events leading up to the American Revolution.

As part of this project, students will work in groups to create their own newspaper based on events leading up to or otherwise involving the American Revolution. Each member of the group should be responsible for a specific "article" of the newspaper: factual, biography, editorial, or political cartoon.

Explaining the project, answering student questions, and allowing them to organize into groups generally requires one class period. Beyond that, the length of the project can vary. The instructions also include a rubric to serve as a checklist for students and a means of assessing completed posters.

Although the guidelines and rubric have been uploaded as a PDF, there is space for adjustments in due date and points available.

I have also included both an organizer that assists students in citing using proper MLA format and a PowerPoint containing samples of completed projects.

Finally, as it is an important step in any project, I have uploaded a student critique sheet that encourages students to assess their own performance as well of those of their group members.

To help prepare students for this project, I have uploaded The Road to Independence. This single resource includes a PPT that describes events leading to the American Revolution, a chart of the Acts of Parliament, and two political cartoons, Join, or Die and The Repeal, or the Funeral of Miss-Ame Stamp. Check it out!

Please feel free to browse the store for other products related to US History, World History, and Government.
