Liking a topic and having some “cool” visuals isn’t always enough, as Cara and Lindsey realize when they compare their tornado project to those of their classmates. They see other students using a rubric to guide their information search and decide to do the same, finally coming up with an outstanding project. (A rubric is a tool, such as a chart, to help students track their information search.)

Your students see how using a rubric can turn a ho-hum project into a knockout.
