The 1930s - Informative Research - Semester 1
The Project: Semester 1
Research a topic from the 1930s
What is it? What caused it? What impact did it have in the 1930s?
What connection does it have to today's world?
How does your topic relate to social justice?
TWO SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENTS:
- Annotated Bibliography
The Annotated Bibliography will be completed using NoodleBib. During class, you will start an account with help from the librarian. Using the Sources tab in NoodleBib, you will create an Annotated Bibliography in MLA Style Format. You will annotate at least 5 credible sources, including:
- 1 primary source
- 1 book source from the library (print or MackinVIA)
- 3 secondary sources (at least one from a library database)
For the Presentation summative assessment, you will be creating a Power Point or Google Presentation and presenting it to the class. In this way, you not only will prove that you learned something from your research, but you will also be able to teach others about your topic.
The Power Point or Google Presentation should include information from your 5 Credible Sources, should be between 10 and 15 slides, and must follow the rules of effective presentations.
