Your project MUST BE COMPLETE UPON ENTERING CLASS. Assembly on the submission date will not be accepted.
This Project will test your understanding of both fundamentals and advanced ideas
To demonstrate the differences between these two economic systems students will need to fulfill the following assignments.
1.) Students must create their own definition for both communism and capitalism in detail [4-6 sentences] and should include an explanation as to why emerging nations in during the cold war tended to lean towards communism as opposed to capitalism. -The more detailed these definitions are the easier your task will be later in the assignment.
2.) Students must develop their own idea for a model, a visual metaphor that they will construct to physically show the difference between these two systems. *You may paint, sculpt, build, mold, photograph, photoshop, draw, etc. anything you want and can think of to show the difference. The importance is to BE CREATIVE! Example: If your definition of Communism was a system that lacks personal property, but provides the bare minimum resource to all citizens, and capitalism; a system that allows for individual choice and ownership. You could have used the following example:
Government Public Transportation vs. Owning a 2018 Black and Yellow Chevrolet Camaro (you may not use this example)
Bonus Challenge 1: For five bonus points in addition to the above include in your visual a metaphor for the conflict between established and emerging nations during The Cold War.
Bonus Challenge 2: For an additional five bonus points include an original definition of socialism and include how it can incorporated with either economic system into your visual.
Product exceeds the grade level expectation of student work. Student created definitions for communism and capitalism are new and though provoking. The difference between the two is illustrated in a new and thought provoking way. Evidence is incorporated to reinforce presentation. The visual metaphor articulates the difference between the two at a glance, and is tied to some aspect of the coursework on The Cold War as it has been examined in class. Student name is clearly visible.
Product shows effort, creativity, originality, and clearly demonstrates the difference between communism and capitalism at a glance; no explanation is needed. Visual metaphor goes to great lengths to articulate the provided detailed definition. Student’s name is clearly visible on the finished product.
Product shows effort, creativity, and demonstrates the difference between communism and capitalism. The relationship between the two may not be clear, or the metaphor may be vague and some explanation may be needed. Student’s name is clearly visible on the finished product.
Product is completed but is lacking effort, and creativity. The visual metaphor does not clearly demonstrate the difference between communism and capitalism. Student name is clearly visible on the finished product.
Student work is non-existent or is totally unacceptable in relation to class expectations and performance.
