The actual content standards will vary depending on the system you are covering. The Indiana State standards for science literacy are addressed. They are as follows:

Production and Distribution of Writing

11-12.WS.4 Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
11-12.WS.5 Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach, focusing on addressing what is most significant for a specific purpose and audience.
11-12.WS.6 Use technology, including the Internet, to produce, publish, and update individual or shared writing products in response to ongoing feedback, including new arguments or information.

Class Management and Safety Issues:
There are no real safety issues or concerns. The teacher can decide on the group size. I suggest groups of 3 – 4. Allow at least 15 minutes per presentation.
Use presentation rubric for assessing/grading
