Love this! The grading rubric that is included clearly articulates all expectations to students. Great incorporation of visuals (diagrams & cartoons). Excellent method of integrating writing into the content of algebra! The inclusion of student work samples and completed project is useful as a guide for students to see what is expected. Very cleverly designed lesson :)
