Eighth graders complete Internet and traditional research to develop a research report published on a student web site. In this research lesson plan, 8th graders select a topic from Australia and visit the given websites to research the topic. Students also research the topic using traditional reference materials and write a rough draft. Students peer edit their papers and create final drafts published on their web site.
Students decide what is important in a community and explore their particular community. In class, the students will discuss what each considers important in a community. Each student will identify something about their town that is important to them (business, park, public service, etc).
Problem solving comes in all shapes and sizes. Small groups rotate through several stations, where they use technological tools, such as cameras and desk top publishing to create a product that shows multiple aspects that comprise their community. Projects include an electronic poster, flyer, newsletter, or documentary style film.
