Ladies and Gentlemen,
In order for you to complete this project you need to be in groups of 2 or 3 and be able to work together outside of school. In the last two weeks we have been studying Immigration and Urbanization, and while studying this topic we are also looking at the divide between the rich and the poor during the Gilded Age. What I would like for you and your group mates to do is go out and photograph your community and create a multimedia project similiar to what Jacob Riis created when he developed "How the Other Half Lived". Is there still a gap between the rich and the poor in society today? You should use a program in which you can add voice such as Movie Maker or Photo Story to tell what you have discovered and how it related to the time period that we are currently studying. I will post a rubric for this assignment and you will have until Monday September 10th you finish your project.
