During the 2nd quarter students will have a current events project. We went over the project and expectations today in class. They will have a date when they will present a news story of their choice to the class. This will allow students to work on research, writing and presenting skills, and provide meaningful discussions for the class. They may work in partners; however, no school time will be allotted for this project. The students know that it will be up to them and their families to coordinate partner work. Also, if they work in partners, they must also write out what each partner did to contribute to the overall project. Below is the assignment and rubric. Below is also the schedule for who is presenting when. The project is due on the day of the presentation.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
