Introduce your students to the world of street art and designers like Banksy and Shepard Fairey, then invite them to create their own street art from the perspective of a character in their current text.
Use this project however it fits best for you. It could be done almost entirely in class or almost entirely out of class.
From the Reviews:
"The subway art project was so cool!
Street Art Web Tour (could spend a day in the computer lab)
Rough Draft Brainstorming page (could spend time in class and provide art supplies)
Final Draft Page (students may choose to work in their own medium)
Analysis Paper Thought Organizer (could spend time in class in writing workshop before students type the final analysis at home)
