Writing Project (This should be about a disease.)
Step 1: Decide if you would like to research a specific noninfectious disease or a specific drug and the process of addiction.
Step 2: Research, so you can effectively and accurately write about your topic.
Step 3: Write a story that weaves health content and a fictional story.
Step 4: Rewrite, rewrite, rewrite.  Use your peers to help you.

** Extension Activity** If you are done with your final project early, make a screencast of yourself reading the story.  You can scroll through the story or create a presentation to go through as you read it.  You will use quicktime for this and upload it to Schoology.**


Documentary Project (You can make a storyboard for a documentary about an approved health topic.  Try to stick to what we have learned in 7th and 8th grade.)
Step 1: Decide what topic you would like to explore.  It can be anything as long as it relates to the 8th grade health curriculum and is approved by your teacher.
Step 2: Think about some key questions that can drive your exploration.  Start exploring and have fun!
Step 3: Decide what is the most important and create a project.
