Washington State CBA - Constitutional Issues

Welcome to the 8th grade CBA (classroom based assessment) RESOURCE GUIDE. I am trying to provide as much information, here, as I can to help guide your project. You will find 3 columns of information to help explain what we are doing, where to get started, and what needs to be completed.

This is a Research Project on a constitutional issue. Students will: 1) Pick a topic of interest.   2) Pick a court case to follow that topic.   3) research multiple websites to gather information        4) Write a multi paragraph persuasive essay or slide presentation  5) turn in all necessary paperwork.    

"Citizens in a democracy have the right and responsibility to make informed decisions. You will make an informed decision on a public issue after researching and discussing different perspectives on this issue." --OSPI
