Project overview: The Make A Difference project (MAD) is a wonderful way for you to demonstrate mastery of a wide variety of language arts skills, while making a difference in your world. Remember, your world can be as big as the entire planet or as small as Memorial Junior High School. You can have a global idea like the boy in Pay it Forward, or you can create something that benefits a small audience.
Unless you choose a project idea that is designed for one person (Write a Book, for example), you should work in a group of 2 or 3. You can work with any people who have me as their language arts teacher.
Review the project ideas below; consider what you'd like to do, then consider with whom you'd like to work.
Remember, you will work with these people for the rest of the school year.
