Character Scrapbook or Collage Project—A pair of projects for students to use images and captions to convey important information about a character from the story. Rubric included. Collage works great for a class or hall decoration.

Media Adaptation Project—Several media choices for students to pick from to retell the story. Good way for students to really get into the text. Self-reflection included to examine the changes of the story because of the change in medium. Grade sheet included.

Modernize It! Project—Many texts read are written and set in the past. This provides a fun opportunity to examine the affect technology would have on the story. Includes a worksheet on evaluating the effect of different technology on the story that can serve as a prewriting or a stand-alone activity. Plus student instruction sheet with rubric for the project.

Movie Poster & Book Cover Projects—Both are important to the marketing of the story and makes a fun project to wrap up. Includes teacher notes for optional discussion and expanding of the project to the elements and design of movie posters and book covers. Student instruction sheets with rubrics included.

Prequel & Sequel Projects—creative writing projects that have students write a story about what came before or what comes next. Includes both prequel and sequel writing with instructions and rubric. Narrative and Graphic Novel versions available. Also includes teacher notes for optional discussion about prequels and sequels.

Rap or Rhyme Project--Students rap or rhyme about the story for a fun take on reviewing or summarizing. Includes options for making a poster/ film/ presentation as well as writing/typing their rap or rhyme. Self-reflection included and a student sample from a cross-curricular English/ History project.

Soundtrack Project—Students will create a soundtrack for the story. This activity relates students’ interest (their music) to the text. Pairs with study of mood, as the project requires students to identify the mood and explain how the song they chose fits that mood. No lesson on mood included, only the project.

Story Mobile Projects-- Fun hands-on activity with two choices. Story Item Mobile relates to symbol and motif as students identify those items, as well as other items of importance to make their mobile. Character Mobile is great for review of characters during or after the story. Includes Character Mobile sample in class.
