PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Reading a classic is the quickest way to expose your students to new vocabulary. Presenting their newfound knowledge to their fellow students is the best way for them to add that vocabulary to their written and spoken expression. Imagine your honors or advanced students learning about 20-25 different classic tales in a short time span! With several Common Core standards underlying this assignment, your students will be able to utilize their minds to explore new territory and to enjoy the ability to use technology to present that knowledge.

Of course, many of these classics (from whichever list you compile) have been adapted to film. The beauty of this assignment is the final slide whereby you ask the students if they think their book would be suitable for making a movie. When all are finished, it is very likely that you can point each of them to a theatrical release. (Although not a part of this assignment, the comparisons and contrasts that can be discovered by your students would meet even MORE of the standards of the common Core)!

Because the length of this assignment can vary, and because there are a myriad of grading possibilities, I have not designed a set of rubrics for that purpose. The listeners, however, may also be graded on the assignment, which should keep them focused on presentations. As an introduction to this assignment, you may want to consider a class novel from your list of classics. You might even use it as an example as you present the assignment.
