Students are challenged with researching an urban legend. Whether they choose to research Bigfoot or a particular ghost story such as La Llorona it doesn't matter. Getting the students engaged in what they are researching is so much fun to see. They are challenged with finding "credible" sources online and are not allowed to use sites such as Wikipedia. The students will make a foldable using 3 sheets of copy paper to create an offset booklet and must keep track of their research in it. They note the story or legend behind it. If it's a crytoid creature, they note it's physical appearance, behavior, etc. They also keep a section for eye-witness information, a list of the sites/ books used, etc. Finally, they produce either a news story, a research paper or a persuasive essay regarding what they researched. They also must produce an MLA formatted Work Cited page.
