“Who Made That?” A Writing Project from KG

Another wriWMT_07_RubiksCube_Rightting project idea from Kelly Gallagher that my reading group highlighted in our presentation of his book In the Best Interest of Students. Students do a mini-research project in which they research how an object, product, invention, etc. was created or became popularized. I love this idea for 9th graders, who need to be introduced to formal research in a small, manageable way. It also allows endless options for personal choice. The mentor text comes from the New York Times Magazine.
