For this assessment tool, students will create promotional material for a charity or non-profit that they support or want to know more about. In my Sociology classes, the presentations are given on the final day of class as a reminder that, though we discussed all the gloom and doom of society throughout the semester, there is still good in the world. This is the students' chance to apply Sociological and Citizenship concepts to help promote something they feel strongly about. Given the nature of choice in the project, students have the opportunity to present in any manner that is to their liking.
The idea, and title "Project for Awesome" are inspired by the Green Brothers' Foundation to Decrease Worldsuck (fightworldsuck.org) - a yearly online project to promote causes and raise money. Though this assessment focuses on the promotion end, students can expand this project to actively develop ways to collect money to divide to charities.
