Student’s reasons about this rating
I feel I put a lot of effort into thisproject. I met with my Science teacher and my history teacher so I can get points for those classes with this project
I completed the items that the rubric requires
I turned this project on time and I have at least three people who made comments about my review.
I made a poster in addition to writing an essay. I posted a review on Amazon and I got two other students to “like” my review
I need help in getting started. I don’t have a good idea and I really don’t like this project
