Collaborative Research Lessons
History of Anything Project
This project is designed to develop research based critical thinking skills. Students may pick a topic of their choice. It should be a topic in which they are interested and want to find out more information about. It should be broad enough to find plenty of information but not too big handle thoroughly in short period of time. The History of Music is too big while the History of Beyonce is too small.
