This is an extension project for the novel "The Breadwinner" by Deborah Ellis (this will also be compatible for students reading "Parvana's Journey". This project encourages students to read informational text, research topics of their choice, and report back by writing articles for a group magazine. This allows for collaboration but maintains individual accountability. I graded this as an individual project even though the magazine was turned in as one whole. There is a good amount of flexibility and choice in this project, as students are assigned a number of paragraphs rather than a number of articles. Students can write many short articles or one longer, in-depth article. They can choose their own topics, but I did include a list of possible topics for kids who get stuck brainstorming their own.
