Google Apps for Education can support a widely
integrated approach to learning in the 21st Century.
Note: This is a Social Studies 'Adopt A Country' Project that incorporates the use of GSuite Sites, Docs, Slides, Sheets, Graphs, Forms, Maps and more. Extensions activities include YouTube, Blogger and More! This project could easily be modified to accommodate other subjects, integrated curriculum, and specific units of study. This PAC Instructions Site provides students with instructions, rubrics, links, examples and more to help them navigate through the project. Individual assignments may also be posted in Google Classroom for feedback and grading before adding to PAC Portfolio. Thank you to J. Blike for allowing us to share your outstanding PAC Site on Guatemala! Thank you also to LIam Coyle, Social Studies teacher who asked me to bring this project online. I think it is a 'treasure!.'

Project Adopt A Country is a year long project that is designed to challenge and to provide an opportunity for you to demonstrate your understanding of another country's economy, culture, geography, food, society, education, plants & wildlife, etc and how these areas relate and compare to that of the United States.
This project is technology rich and is intended to increase your skills and abilities to research, analyze, and synthesize information and represent your understanding in various formats. There are many technology projects an d choices for you throughout the year.
Project choices include Presentations, Videos, Documents, Essays, and other Web 2.0 presentation tools.
Most of the work in this project will be able to be completed on any computer with an Internet connection which means you can work from home, the library, at school - just about anywhere!
First, you will choose country! Make this choice carefully. It may be a country from which your ancestors emigrated, or it may be a country that you have relatives living in, or it may simply be a country that fascinates or intrigues you.
Remember this is your project; you will spend a lot of time on it so select your country wisely and carefully.
