Independent Projects

Due by October 13th

Students will be expected to choose a topic to complete as an independent project grade. A few of the topics do allow for students to work in pairs or a small group of four or fewer.  Projects must be submitted to Mrs. Johnson by October 13.  Students will want to follow the specific rubric that corresponds with their project. Use the Google Classroom website with your Google account if you wish to upload your project for me to view. These same projects will then be presented in the social studies class with Mrs. Davis for an oral presentation grade for her class as well.
