The way I use it... 
Students enjoy this project! This is a 1-2 week project. Each class is different and each year is different; therefore, I can't do everything the same each time I teach the same subject. As I scaffold and model the information to my students, I have students write in the due dates. I make this an at-school project and have students keep their brochure in a designated location.

Next, I will choose which graphic organizers to give the students or I may give them all the choices and let them choose. The outline and graphic organizers are an optional teaching tool to help the students organize their thoughts.

In addition, I make sure all the research is complete before I allow students to work on the additional activities in this project. Sometimes, I may let students work on the map or flag while researching since this may be easier to accomplish simultaneously.

Then you can choose which rubric work best for your class. 

Once the brochure is complete, I have the students complete the self evaluation and then peer evaluations. I have students pair up and exchange papers. I have clipboards students can use while they sit around the room for this activity. It’s important for you to model for the students how to peer edit. Many times students just want to be nice and not give feedback. However, this is a great opportunity for students to read each others essays and learn from each other. 

Additionally, the student website can be created through many different sites for free. Google and Weebly are good places to have students create an online website. If this does not work for your class, you can have them draw their homepage.

Furthermore, I have my students prepare a 1-3 minute presentation. It will be your choice on whether or not they can use their notes. If you have early finishers or want to extend the project, you can add a PowerPoint using the speech outline for page requirements. Some students like to use a PowerPoint to help them during presentations if that is feasible.

Lastly, there are additional resources such as the checklist, postcards, key word list, or graphic organizers that are available to meet student needs. The homepage and speech are optional activities that you can use with your students.

Happy Teaching!
