A variety of activities through which the student demonstrates understanding of the novel Animal Farm are provided within this layered curriculum format. Students are required to complete their choice of assignments to earn a C, B, or A grade. A bonus writing assignment for extra credit is also provided for the student who is willing to go that extra mile. This curriculum can be adapted to suit the needs of your own class. I have assigned this to my gifted 8th grade ELA students to complete as we read the novel.
