The way I use it...

Students enjoy this project! This is a 2-3 month project. Each class is different and each year is different; therefore, I can't do everything the same each time I teach the same subject. I give each student a three pronged folder with the packet inside. As I scaffold and model the information to my students, I have students write in the due dates. I make this an at-school project and have students keep their research folder in a designated location. Also, you can choose themes for your project such as children’s authors, presidents, Native Americans, American Revolution historical figures, American heroes, African Americans, famous people/Americans, scientists/inventors, composers, or historical figures from your state. The choice is yours!

I decided to keep the requirement pages for the variations/differentiation choices grouped together in each category. I thought this would be less confusing for the teacher when deciding what to print out for his or her students. It will state “Same as page #” next to the page description in the table of contents.

Happy Teaching!
