PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product includes both a prompt/project description and a rubric to assess the project. I use this as a final assessment when my junior English students do a literature circle unit where they are divided into groups and each group reads and discusses a different novel. When creating this project, I tried to focus on what the Common Core would demand of a group project; as a result, the rubric reflects four components: creativity, collaboration, content, and professionalism. I require them to somehow engage their audience and encourage them to use technology (polleverywhere.com, videos inserted into Prezi presentations, etc.). They then present these projects to the class, so speaking and listening skills are stressed (and are assessed under the "professionalism" category on the rubric). To ensure that their product is both interesting and shows analysis of the novel, I included "core questions" of which they must answer at least two; this produced projects that were both entertaining and thoughtful. The core questions encourage students to make thematic connections to other texts, find personal relevance within the book, examine how the book's themes can be transferred to today, etc., all of which address Common Core ELA standards.

This could easily be adapted on a smaller scale and done with short stories, where each group is assigned a different short story.
