 Students will be allowed first to copy down the guidelines for this unit! Students will work on this unit every day in class, starting in 1 month! That's when we will begin this unit!
 I as a teacher will give the students a list of Resources to insist that they find all the criteria of writing their material! Students should each team member, after enough information is collected, begin writing their own article, then bring all the articles from the group together to form their overalll article!
Checking For Understanding:
 I will be grading each student with a rubric that I have generated exactly for this Project! Not only will they be graded on this but on their individual progress as well!
 Teams will take turns publishing newspaper issues. The team publishing the newspaper will need to edit all of the srticles and format the images selected, including the text! After each team has published their own issue, as a class we will decide how often we will publish these issues, or just this once!
 5 Pts will be graded for content. 5 Pts will be graded for sources of information 5 Pts will be graded for the article being error free 5 Pts will be graded for notcing the content well organized. 5 Pts will be graded for Image is relevant & appropriate. 5 Pts will be graded for the article being authentic and intresting. 10 Pts will be graded for participation and teamwork! For a grand total of 40! Which will be interchanged to a 100, if the student recieve the maximum point level!
Teacher Reflections:
