Procedure | Evaluation


The project grade will consist of both group and individual components.  One group grade will be assigned to each person in the group based upon the common work product. This will count for 50% of the project grade. The other 50% will consist of your individual grade in the group presentation.

On Presentation Day

Each presenter submits:

  1. completed, revised Historical Biography/Resume; and an
  2. individual annotated bibliography (final revised copy).

Each group submits the group work product (mural/exhibit catalogue, scrapbook, multimedia presentation, magazine/video).

During the presentations, the class will gather information using Making Sense of What We've Studied to collect essential ideas from each presentation along thematic lines.
