A new Social Studies Timeline project was assigned to students today. This project is only applicable for students who are in my Social Studies class (a few students attend reading pull-out and therefore are not in Social Studies class). Students were provided with a large white paper to do the project on, however you are more than welcome to use a larger poster board for the project as well. Students will receive a rubric for the project on Wednesday 10/5/11. Students are expected to turn the rubric in with the project on Tuesday, 10/11/11 in order to receive full credit.
