This is intended to be a summative project on the novel. It involves both writing and drawing or using graphics of some sort. The project requires students to synthesize knowledge of the work with possible moral values hinted at in Twain's writing. The format for products is intentionally simple: Everything must fit on one side of a letter-sized page. While this makes it easy to post finished projects in the classroom, it also establishes constraints that struggling students will appreciate and highly motivated students will try to test. Truly clever students will manipulate color, shape, even dimension. I have had students add three-dimensional elements to their projects. Makes it a bit tricky to staple to the board!
The project includes a very specific nine-aspect, 100-point scoring rubric. The project is applicable to most grade levels because the degree of complexity and sophistication rises with students' abilities.
Twenty years in three states and four countries other than the U.S. I started out teaching ESL/EFL, but the last ten years have seen me specialize in IB English A1 HL. I have taught nearly every grade level and competency at the high school level.
