At the end of your unit on the Southeast Region, assign students a project that will excite them and provide varied opportunities for extension! Students will select an option from the project menu to complete. These project options touch on the history and geography of the region. Rubrics with student friendly language are included for each of the region projects. Rubrics can be used for both instructing students of project requirements and assessing their work.
Students can choose from four options on the menu. Musical students can design a "Mixed CD", providing information on Blues and Jazz music that comes from this region. They may choose to memorize and recite part of MLK Jr.'s "I Have A Dream" speech. Students can create a cookbook of Southeastern recipes, or present a poster on a Civil Rights Leader. There is something for everyone.
My students select a project at the end of each region's unit. They couldn't be more excited for the new project menu to be handed out. Motivate your students with a choice of quality projects!
