Students choose from 5 choices and present projects in class as a review/wrap up to studying Watership Down. I would give students 3-4 weeks to choose the project, complete it, and present it to the class.
This provides students who are not excellent writers a chance to succeed in a literature analysis/writing heavy English class.
These projects would work for any piece of literature you are studying.
Grading Rubric suggestion as follows:
50 points - 10 points for each category:
In Depth Understanding of the Story
