This enjoyable, hands-on writing experience can be used as a culminating project and one of your assessments with your Revolutionary War unit. Informational texts can be made available and websites can be bookmarked so that your students can research the battles of the American Revolution, important people, and the goods and services used at that time. Included:
* Specific elements needed for the newspaper on printables for the
students to use.
* Graphic organizer for recording research and thoughts before writing
on their cardstock.
* Two different rubrics are provided - one a quick assessment and the
other rubric more detailed.
* Photos of actual student work and photo of a 'template' so students
can clearly see what is expected
This project provides an opportunity to write persuasively, as well as creatively. Students can be provided with large cardstock, that can be artfully torn along the edges to approximate parchment.
