Reflection: Performance Tasks Write a letter to a President - Section 5: Closure


The performance task of writing a friendly letter to a U.S. President and writing one question they still have about a U.S. President allowed me to explain to my students that although they have learned a lot about our U.S. Presidents, there is still so much more they can learn.  They can take the opportunity to be scholars as researchers to find out more about our U.S. Presidents.  The quest for knowledge about our Presidents does not have to stop with this unit.  Some of my students even expressed a desire to grow up to be the President themselves!
