Mr. President

Project Based Learning Unit

OakRun Middle School

Eighth grade American HIstory students are embarking on their third PBL unit for this school year. The task for this assignment is to design a national monument for one of the first 4 U.S. Presidents and create a commercial to highlight his success and promote the monument proposal. In addition, the students will create propaganda against the other 3 Presidents intent on displaying the weaknesses of their administration. .

Look forward to seeing our PBL unit come to life with pictures of our students working during this process. Please facilitate discussion at home concerning the Mr. President project. We look forward to working with your amazing kids :)
