E-mailing the Chamber of Commerce

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.

Lesson Planet has transformed they way I teach. When I finally admitted that it was ok to utilize the knowledge of other teachers and began adopting these lesson plans the time I saved and excitement I felt energized my classroom.
