Rubric used to model, write, and evaluate writing project of adapting a children's book into a formal script. Rubric measures title, author credit, plot, characters, setting, dialog, action, punctuation, spelling and grammar.
I check out children's books from the public library, have students select a book, model how to adapt a book using the rubric, and then give my 7th and 8th graders a week and a half to adapt the book. I have them use google docs so they can share their work with others without having to print- but any resources you have would work.
I'm available to let you know which children's books I've used the last few years- just send me an email. :)
