    materials often to make sure your exhibit meets
    all project guidelines.

Overview of Tasks
  • You are part of a team that will develop an
    exhibit proposal based on one decade from the
    20th Century. In order to win a contract your
    exhibit proposal must include all components
    listed in the Project Specifications. Your
    exhibit must be eye-catching and interactive, yet
    still inform the public about that particular
    decade. Exhibit proposals must also have a
    balance of creativity and content.
  • There will also be a presentation of your
    proposal and each team member will submit a
    separate category report.

Back to Contract Overview
  • You will be working in groups of four. I will
    allow cross-homeroom groups. If you choose to be
    in a group with individuals from another
    homeroom, be advised that this will cut down on
    your ability to work in class together.
  • Once the groups have been chosen, each group will
    be assigned a number. There will be a lottery
    for the groups to choose their decade. Each
    group will choose a decade from the 20th Century.
    There are Jobs and Categories for each group
    member. See the Project Specifications page for
    specifc job/category requirements.

Exhibit Rubric
  • Project (200 Points)
  • The project will be presented in the form of an
    12 by 12 museum exhibit. Students may use this
    space in whatever way they see fit. Displays
    will be set up in the gym on the day of the fair.
    The project component will be graded on the
    following criteria.
  • Creativity of Design (50 Points)
  • Students will be graded on the level of
    creativity their display has. Displays must be
    colorful and appealing to the eye.
  • Accurate Content (60 Points)
  • Displays must include information that is
    complete, accurate, and appropriate to the
    subject material.
  • Balance of Design and Content (10 Points)
  • There must be a balance of creativity and content
    on the displays. In other words, a display
    should not be so flashy that it has no
    information about the subject material, nor
    should it include so much information that it is
    dull and boring. This also includes a balance of
    written material and pictures, graphics, etc.
  • Organization (30 Points)
  • The display must be well organized. Facts should
    be grouped into content areas. A display should
    not have random facts and material put anywhere
    on the display.
  • Timeline (10 Points)
  • The display must include a brief timeline of the
    groups topic. Students should pick ten major
    events / items that are relevant to their topic.
  • Interactive Component (30 Points)
  • Each display must have at least one interactive
    component. This component should allow a viewer
    of the display to become involved with the
    display / information in some way. For ideas,
    think of displays in museums and how visitors to
    those museums can get involved with the display.
    Examples will be shown in class.
  • Sources List (10 Points)
  • Each display must include a basic list of the
    sources from the group research.
