1.2. Cross-curricular blending and resources

1.3. Technology integration & app-smashing proficiency

1.4. Student expectations and group work/collaboration

2. Project Overview

2.1. Timeline

2.1.1. 1st week of school (second semester as students will have already been walked through and mastered a variety of platforms in the "H" and "A" categories), students will hear from a historian on the 1920's and will begin reading The Great Gatsby

2.1.2. 2nd week of school, students will continue reading and receive a project introduction and the rubrics for their project.

2.1.3. 3rd week of school, students will begin working in groups. They will assign the roles of each group member, create a timeline, and sit with the instructor to create goals for each role and the group as a whole.

2.1.4. 4th and 5th week will be work time every other day and reading every other day.

2.1.5. 6th week student groups will have checkpoint conversations with instructor and figure out what is left of the project. Students will continue working.

2.1.6. 7th week students will finish projects and will receive invitations to give to their family members and friends to come see their exhibition.

2.1.7. 8th week students will use all classroom to put final touches on the project and set up their portion of the exhibit. At the end of this week, the exhibition will take place.

2.2. Student Expectations

2.2.1. Work collaboratively in groups

2.2.2. Assign leadership roles within the group and perform assigned role with greatest care and commitment

2.2.3. Timely completion of work

2.2.4. Intimate knowledge of content and platforms is displayed in every element of work

2.3. Project Description

2.3.1. Students (in groups of 3-4) in an 11th grade English classroom will be given the challenge of coming up with a solution for a variety of problems (whether social, political, economic, criminal, etc.) present in the 1920s as related to The Great Gatsby (the book will need to be critically integrated into their project). They will need to find a problem to solve, ask crucial questions related to the solution of the problem, and create a plan to remedy the issue. They will then be required to engage in multiple platform usage to craft an exhibition project over the course of the quarter. The project will engage students in critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, real-world experience, and public relations (as related to the exhibition portion of the project).

3. Key questions:

3.1. What were some of the major inciting incidences of Prohibition and the movement of crime in the 1920s?

3.2. What connections should be made between the state of the U.S. in the 1920s and now?

3.3. How does Scott F. Fitzgerald's language and descriptive techniques in The Great Gatsby engage readers in understanding the climate (socially, politically, etc.) of the 1920s?

3.4. How does my skill set best contribute to group work and collaboration?

3.5. What kind of connections can I make between what I'm interested in and what this project requires and looks like?
