Why Lesson Planet?
Encourage effective internet research and e-mail correspondence as scholars investigate a US capital city they've never visited to find pertinent and relevant information. They begin by picking a city, then visit that city's chamber of commerce website to find contact information. Using a list of questions (or perhaps they could come up with some), learners interview a representative over e-mail. They use this and other information they gather to create a fact sheet and visual presentation. Unfortunately, links to the handouts, example, and rubric may not work. You will need to spend some time creating these before beginning this project.
