Congratulations you wonderful people!
You are so close to achieving something wonderful. I am proud of each and every one of you. However we must stay focused for a bit longer (about three weeks to be exact). Your final project will be due on Friday May 24th at 3:15 pm.
This project will answer, economically, our year long questions "How might we create a more just and equitable society?" Earlier in the semester you voted to learn about financial literacy as it was the biggest issue in your communities and you felt it would provide the most equity. Now that we have spent an entire semester learning about financial literacy it is time for us to present our findings through this final project.
You must look at all of the topics we have covered this semester and decide which of these topics is the most important for your community to learn about. You will then need to prove why this is a need in your community. You will then need to explain why it is important for your community to learn this and provide evidence to support your claim. Lastly you will need to explain how you will teach the community this topic.
For this final you will need to complete:
In your paper you must:
In your presentation you must:
Last but not least.
This is the last project you will complete this year and the last in your high school career. As a result I would like this to be more like a college paper or project. What I have provided here is a basic outline for you to complete your work with what is needed to pass the class.
If you need more guidance and explanation I will be more than happy to provide you with help, guide you through the project, help you create a TIEA graphic organizer as well as provide feedback on drafts. All you need to do is sign up for "office hours" to come see me. You will be able to sign up for 10 minute meetings during class and 30 minute meetings after school. It is your responsibility to ask for the help that you need.
YOUR PRESENTATION WILL BE DUE ON MAY 24th at 3:15pm!!!!!
