Just add Books!
The idea behind this project is that students will integrate the fiction and nonfiction common core standards. This project may be a bit of a stretch for those of you that are very “by the book”, however, it was a nice wrap-up to our unit, and our district insists we teach RL 3.6 and RI 3.2 in the same unit, so it worked well for us. Also, our students loved it!
You will need a packet of the pages included for each student, and biographies for them to choose from. Another alternative would be to check your reading anthologies for biographies (our Journeys book has Thomas Edison and Roberto Clemente, so some of my students opted to do one of them instead of selecting from my books!
