In this final activity, students will create an informative school newspaper article and give a two- to three-minute presentation that describes their cause, outlines their final T-shirt design, and explains the reasoning they used to make design, materials, and manufacturing decisions. Students should work with the guidelines on page 16 in their Engineering Portfolios to complete their work. Students may create posters or graphics to aid in their presentation. You may also consider asking students to create their presentations using PowerPoint, and they may compose their newspaper articles using Word.
Use the Assessment Rubrics (Appendix D) to grade your students' presentations and news articles. You may want to share the rubric with your students before they begin working. Finally, allow students to vote on their favorite designs.
