Colleagues: I am going with a Daniel Pink idea in my classroom in the next unit and allowing my students something that is called "FedEx Days" where students create questions they want to have answered and then present what they have found after 2 days. (The idea comes from the Daniel Pink book, "Drive" where he talks about how FedEx (and now Google) gave employees 1 day a week to work on pet projects that related to the company) So my students will submit to me questions they have about Government - any question is fine. Then they will have 2 days and all the resources they need to answer the question. They will then have 2 minutes to make a short presentation-however they want (but there must be a visual aid - ppt, etc.) about what they have found. The issue I have is I need help developing a rubric for this presentation. Has anyone ever done this before? Can anyone offer any advice on how to craft a rubric for this presentation? Thanks! -Jason
