The way I use it...
      Students enjoy this project!  This is a 2-3 month 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.  I give each student a three pronged folder with the packet inside.  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 research folder in a designated location.  Also, you can choose themes for your project such as children’s authors, presidents, Native Americans, American Revolution historical figures, American heroes, African Americans, famous people/Americans, scientists/inventors, composers, or historical figures from your state. The choice is yours!

     I decided to keep the requirement pages for the variations/differentiation choices grouped together in each category.  I thought this would be less confusing for the teacher when deciding what to print out for his or her students.   It will state “Same as page #” next to the page description in the table of contents.

     Additionally, for differentiation, choose what you need to use from that selection.  All the resources in the PDF are not duplicates unless stated.  They are additional resources or have been modified to meet student needs.

             Happy Teaching!
