Product Description
Are you looking for a meaningful End of the Year activity that will not only let your students have fun and show their creativity, but also requires them to conduct research and think critically? Look no further than the Summer Vacation Debate Banners: Mini Research Project! This project contains over 50 pages of instructional materials that will help guide teachers and students through this activity. Students will LOVE that they get to debate a real world topic and get to create a small project instead of writing an essay. Teachers will LOVE that they have a resource that requires little prep and includes EDITABLE templates that allow them to create their own directions, project requirements, and add their own images. Another bonus for teachers is that this product contains a detailed rubric, strong and weak teacher models as well as pictures of the project in action, and a list of suggested websites that students can use for research.

The following materials are included in this product:

Summer Vacation Debate Research Handouts: The research handouts contain differentiated assignment options and a suggested list of websites that students can use to research. After students have selected their claim, they will create a list of 5-6 self-generated questions that they have about their claim that will help guide them during their research. There is also a double entry journal that students can use to record their research information and their explanations of the text evidence.

Grading Rubrics: There are two versions of a detailed rubric that can be used to grade this project. The rubric focuses on these four attributes: focus/purpose, content, organization, and presentation/appearance of banner. One rubric contains a point value assigned to each column and the other rubric does not assign a point value. This allows you to determine how much each part of the project is weighted.

15 Pre-designed and EDITABLE templates with DIRECTIONS: Banners offer you a variety of options for this project and ways that you can customize the requirements for the banner to better fit the needs of your students. The fully completed banner includes room for a photo, a section for their claim, and a "Evidence to Support My Claim" section where they will list 5-6 pieces of information that supports their claim. In addition, there is a second side available for students to write their short argumentative writing responses.
