About the Final Exhibition
Students in 8th grade at Crossroads College Prep will investigate a social studies topic and present that topic in the form of a public exhibition.
At the core of the exhibition are the relationships between product and process; purpose and form; authenticity and the “real world.” It is through this demonstration of knowledge that the internal learning process is made public.

Thank you for taking your time to view and evaluate our work. Please realize that the public nature of this project is very important to me, and your honest assessment is equally important. Please take your time and mark the rubric carefully and honestly. Your scores and marks are for the viewing of the INSTRUCTOR only, and they will not be shared with the student.
Once again thank you,
John Merritt, Middle School Director, Crossroads College Preparatory School
