The Common Core requires increased reading and writing in ALL Classes. However, it is challenging to engage children in writing and reading when outside of English class. This assignment works with students to have them read and break down articles, summarize them, and then create graphic representations of said reading. I have attached an assignment sheet and a bubble map. I have also included links to articles that my students used as well as the smartboard presentation I used to present the assignment.
I love this for using Adobe Illustrator and having the kids create productive drawings.... also works with Adobe Photoshop... or you can also just do this on paper without any programs.
The two images are EXAMPLES of student produced work from this project.
