For the 2016/17 second semester final, students were asked to be creative in order to show their knowledge of the terms we learned. These terms spanned the last 100 years of American history. Although I gave them options for their creativity, some students came up with ideas that I hadn’t thought of, such as creating a puzzle or a board game. On the board game, for example, in order to move forward, a question you might be asked is, “What was one cause for the Great Depression?” Other spaces on the board might say, “You fell in love with a flapper. Move back one space.”
Other students created a short video as a team or composed a poem. Here are a few links to some of these projects.
Last but not least, here is a wonderful example of a digital infographic: Second Semester Final
It’s been an awesome first year. Thanks to all my awesome students at Desert Christian High School.
