Have you watched ABC's show Shark Tank? It's where people can bring their inventions and innovations that they have created and present them to the well known "sharks" (investors) for them to help get their new product on the market. I have taken this idea and made this a fun and interactive assignment for my core literacy students.
In this PDF you will recieve a detailed timeline of how I use in this project in my class and a "Cheat Sheet" that I hand out to my students.
If you have any questions about this project please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to share my experiences from this project with you!! In my classroom it has been a huge hit and my students have really benefitted from this experience.
