I recently worked with a phys ed teacher who has an eighth grade Health section. She wanted to make her drug unit project more than just reading and answering questions. The library-media specialist and I got right to work. The LMS created a project requirement grading checklist/rubric while I created a menu of project choices. We also gathered websites and books for the kids to use for their research.
I stopped into the class while students were working to encourage them to step outside of their comfort zone and choose something other than a power point or prezi. A handful of kids accepted that challenge and rose to the occasion. They wrote poems, songs and created interactive posters. The menu board is located at anti%20drug%20project%20menu.pub.
