Build-A-Classroom Final Project
Due Date: Friday, August 27th at 5:00 PM
This project will require you to use your cumulative knowledge from throughout the course to
create a â€œclassroom manualâ€. Each section of your manual should follow the instructions set out
in the â€œFinal Project Tie Inâ€ for the respective section. There are 10 sections, each covering a
topic that we cover in class, which should allow for you to tie what you learned into a real life
type of scenario.
The manual that you create will be a document (either a Word Doc or PDF) that should end up
being a minimum of 7 pages long (including title and reference page). There is not a specified
formatting requirement but whatever type of formatting you use should be coherent and
consistent (meaning uniform font/font size throughout, page numbers in the same location, etc.).
Organization is the key to success with this project, ensuring that each section is complete and
in order is essential.
