Rome Unit Authentic Assessment

The Roman Newspaper Project is a fun and engaging project for students to demonstrate what they learned about the rise and fall of Rome. The project gives them a focus area, but also allows them to report on events that they found most interesting. Each year I use this project as an authentic assessment following the end of the Rome unit. I have structured the assignment handout as a sample for students to see what a completed project should like. With this project, I introduce all the elements and requirements to the class and then devote the rest of class to planning using the Roman Newspaper Planner. I provide them with the blank Newspaper Template for their final draft, but I also allow students to turn in their own creations. Students really enjoy this project, as it is focused on the content, yet still allows them some creative freedoms. You can find this project here....Enjoy!
