So I want to do a review project of sorts before our midterm week (last week of Jan). For my Western Civ classes, I was thinking of breaking students into groups of 5 and actually having them create their own textbook chapter. I've never done this before so I'm still unsure if this is asking too much of them, but I was hoping to have students create roughly 8-9 pages of text (with pictures, side boxes, and other add-ons) on a particular subject we've covered.
