Whimsy and Rigor

What educators are saying

I love the idea of this assignment. It can be used with ANY novel, was interesting to my students, and allowed them to be creative.
My students loved this activity! They had fun creating and designing, and I appreciated the spot for inclusion of textual support.


Get those creative and critical thinking skills going with this activity designed to help students analyze and deeply understand a character's conflict by asking them to create an app (that does not yet exist!) that could have greatly benefited a character.

This handout creates space and prompts for students to analyze the character's problem, back it up with evidence from the text, design an app that would have helped the character, and then explain how it would have changed the character's journey.

Plus, they get to do some graphic design as they create an icon for their app.

UPDATED to include directions for the written component and instructions for hosting a "gallery walk."

Critical thinking and creativity in one go! That's a win!
