Students will be able to conduct independent research to collect evidence and assess the credibility of sources. Students will be able to write and speak in academic language using relevant vocabulary. 
Students will have a specific step on their research project to complete for each class. Any unfinished work and final project preparations should be completed outside of class. 
I will provide project handouts as needed. Students may need various materials depending on the type of project they choose to make.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be assessed by me and their peers using a rubric. Rubric is aligned with middle school Common Core English standards.
