From the Silk Road to the Green Generation: The Past, Present and Future of the Global Economy is a Project Based Learning unit that ties all periods of time together into a culminating course wide presentation. Teams representing chapters in the unit will be gathering information over the final grade period of the school year, work with the production team, the IT team, and the teacher to produce a multi chapter DVD. Students will be assessed on their group's work and individual research and analysis of their chapter. Student journals and self assessment will be used as well. Students will do peer reviews of work at all stages of the project.
