Research Options

  • You can assign the same number of sheets to every student or vary requirements for differentiation.
  • For the simplest research project, assign only the first page (basic information).
  • To add complexity, also assign the second page (challenges and how the person overcame them).
  • For the most complex assignment, add the third page (how history changed the person’s life, how the person changed history). To better organize this, give students the double timeline as well.

Enjoy Teaching!
