Entry document asks students to create a weather magazine that includes given topics (ie. 3-day forcast for given town, analysis of meteorological data, article on climate change, article on local severe weather.

Uses template for a group contract to complete the work (he also uses groups of 3).  In the contract are guidelines for “firing a group member” with specific ways to solve the problem within the group, with the teacher, and then if you get three strikes, you’re fired and have to do the project alone.

Bill provides the kids with a Publisher template that they edit for their final product.

Bill’s email:  williamburgess@ewsit.nthls.com  He will send the rubric template their school uses.  Very nice!
