This group project is an investigation, both globally and in the United States, of the inequalities in Income, Race, Ethnicity, Gender, & Age. Students explore 6 different topics inside of each inequality, comparing the inequalities in the United States to the World, and examining the history of the inequality. Project includes a very specific rubric for grading/scoring. Rubric is divided in 3, scoring for an individual paper, the group depth and clarity of presentation and the group creativity of the presentation.
I use the project for my Sociology class. It could be used for teaching government, economics, history or any other Social Studies or ELA class.
