Closely tied with the technology component of this ITU, students will create and present their visual media projects at the end of the unit. The three options are listed below.

1. Students will create posters that explain their understanding of the processes involved in Hydraulic Fracturing, along with alternative forms of energy, and the benefits/costs of each.  The posters can be created using either traditional or electronic media.

2. The alternative project will be a short video explaining the hydraulic fracturing process, along with comparisons to other forms of energy generation.

3. Students will create a web catalog of artistic resources they have found that they believe accurately represent energy/environmental concerns.

Students will follow the attached rubric to design their projects. Points will be given for completeness and creativity. This project will be worth 10 points.*
