project-based assignments that utilize research skills, writing,
history, and 21st Century technologies are included in this file.
Although research writing is at the root of each of these projects,
students get the opportunity to use several Web 2.0 tools such as blogs
and wikis. The goal of these projects is to make research writing
meaningful to students, as well as help them become actively engaged in
self-discovery. Teacher and student resources, student samples, and
rubrics are also provided.
Project 1: Walking Across America
Project 2: "Back in the Day" Research Project
