A summative performance assessment for the novel "A Long Walk to Water" by Linda Sue Park!
The novel "A Long Walk to Water," which is based partly on actual people and almost entirely on actual events, is a gripping story of a Lost Boy of Sudan. Through heart-wrenching twists and turns, the readers of this story learn about two crises occurring in Sudan even until today: the genocide and the water crisis.
This performance assessment asks students to create two public service announcements to display, hand out, and make available for the community. This public service announcement will entice the community to research the issue further, become an advocate in the fight for Sudan, and donate time or money to the cause.
