The Great Debate Evaluation

Although no one may ever win this Great Debate, all team members have won an incredible amount of knowledge, and not just about the topic. All of you have gained reading, writing, researching, cooperative learning and graphic design skills. Congratulations. Now, it's time to evaluate your progress.

Students will be given two grades. One group grade and one individual grade. The final project grade will be an average of the two grades. Students will also fill out a self-evaluation rubric, which the teacher will consider when evaluating the group grade.

The teacher will be grading your work using the following rubric. Four means the work was outstanding while 1 means the work was less than acceptable.
1, 2, 3, 4 Project was well researched, using various Web sites and sources.
