The ¡Tierra y Libertad! project focused on the Mexican Revolution. Students worked in groups ranging from two to five people and were given a menu of project products to choose from. Examples included creating a magazine or newspaper, making a movie with Corrido, building a 3-D map, designing a scrapbook or creating an illustrated timeline.
The students practiced their presentations using the Critical Friends protocol before giving their final graded presentations. The last activity was a written piece for students to reflect on their learning (content and skills) and their contributions to the cooperative group work.
Project Duration: 1 Month
