This project includes a rubric, ALL DIRECTIONS for students and teacher.
This project has students create a class website where there are six different topics dealing with the reform movements from the mid 1800s in the U.S. You can have the students use the EASY to use, drag and drop Weebly, Wix, or any other type of free website creation tool. There are free tutorials on You Tube that explain how to use each site.
The topics include: Spirit of Reform Section, Prison Reform, Education Reform, the Movement to End Slavery, and Equal Rights for Women.
Each section has an objective along with SPECIFIC requirements for each section.
Below is a sample of one of the sections with requirements:
18.6 Equal Rights for Women (NOT 1900s, must be mid-1800s)
