Campaign for Energy Final Project⚡ in Google Classroom

Campaign for Energy Final Project⚡

There are loads of different words for what a campaign is, some people say activist, change maker, protester, community leader, community organizer etc. I think of a campaigner as anyone who sees something that they want to change in the world and goes about trying to do that. 

In this unit we have learn all about energy; where it comes from, different types, and renewable sources. For your final project, it's time to bring it all together in a campaign for energy. 

Your task 

1. Select a form of energy that is inspiring and fascinating to you. You will be convincing us that your energy source is the ideal energy source so I encourage you to find something you are passionate about. 
2. Research and plan your topic and check that all of your facts are correct. What information will you represent and how will you present? Must include local, national, and global impact your energy source has. 
3. Create a slogan (a catchphrase or series of words) that represent your energy source
4. A short presentation on your source. Consider a speech or commercial. Convince and inform your audience!
5. A poster/campaign device that captures your message. Samples attached. 
It is OK to work alongside of others to share resources, skills, and ideas. Scholars may get help from home too with practicing presentations and making campaign items. You will be presenting your own work and are required to complete all steps listed above. Get creative and have fun! Share your passion for this type of energy source! 

***Check the rubric and check in with me often, to ensure you are on the right track and meeting the assignment requirements. ***

**Upload or turn in any documents here. You will receive your grade through the GC rubric.

Powering the Planet ⚡🌎 in Google Classroom

Powering the Planet ⚡🌎

Today will be a tiny, itty bit tricky in regards to technology. I do know that it is easier to watch the video while not in the meet, so we will be meeting briefly to take attendance and discuss the assignment then end the meet to allow time for you to watch the video.  


**Tip: Read over the questions in the form first. Then watch the video. Finally,  do the form and have the video up alongside in split screen if needed. **

This documentary is about the possibilities of alternative energy sources and what is involved in generating and applying energy. There is a Google form with 10 questions that connect with this video so have it up next to your form to ensure accuracy. It is expected that your answers are in complete sentences and you have checked grammar and spelling. 

🧑🏼‍🏫 Grading scale on this one:
All 10 correct 100 😎
less than 7 is NC 😲
Focus on the accuracy of your answers. Follow through all parts.  👍👍
