Texas Defender Rubric

ruler, markers, colored pencils, or crayons
The teacher distributes a Texas Defender Rubric to each
student, and then reviews the expectations with them.
Students go to the web site listed under WEB LINKS,
and choose one of the defenders whose last name begins with the same letter as theirs (or by any other method you choose as long as their choices as a class represent many of the defenders). They need to make sure that the specifics they need are listed for the person they choose (eg. some do not have a known birthplace).
Once a defender has been decided on, the information required on the rubric is written on a separate piece of paper.
Next, the information is transferred to the white paper, as
indicated by the rubric. Each student turns-in their poster
with the rubric.
