This project can be done individually, in pairs, or in small groups (I prefer individual). I use this in my HTM (Hospitality and tourism management) class but this can also be great for geography or marketing-related courses.
Students research different states in the United States (this can easily be adapted for international areas) and present it to the class as if they were trying to motivate students as tourists to visit the area. Watching a few clips of commercials for states (i.e. Utah, California, etc.) on YouTube can be a great introduction.
This project meets nearly all Common Core standards for technical subjects and allows for students to use their knowledge from previous lessons (i.e advertising, tourism motivators, etc.) and create a unique presentation that will teach the entire class.
Detailed rubric included. Both .pdf and .doc files are on the zip for easy editing.
