Reflection: Rigor Legacy Research: Reading about Persistent Issues Following our Study of Afghanistan (Day 1 of 2) - Section 3: Beginning Research on Poster Session Info


Originally, I had wanted to have the students write a formal letter in addition to creating a media project on their topics of interest.  The reality of a time crunch was getting in the way, however.  We were running up against spring break, the end of 3rd quarter, and a wee bit of fatigue after having been at it with Kite Runner for weeks.  As a result, I decided to have the students do the first part of the project only and not do the letter writing.  When I run this unit again, I definitely plan to have them do the letter writing.  As it stands, I think it was a mistake to drop that part!
