This is an end of the unit project for The Crucible that mixes creative writing and article analysis. After reading The Crucible, students will choose three items from the board that makes a tic-tac-toe win (three horizontal, vertical, or diagonally). This lets students interact with characters and ideas from text in multiple ways. My kid had a lot of fun with it.
- Tic-Tac-Toe Project Board
- 3 articles with analysis and close reading questions based on the content or concepts of The Crucible.
Give students Tic-Tac-Toe board. You can let them play each other to decide what they have to do or let them choose whichever ones they want. Make sure you have several copies of the 3 article analysis pieces printed. I give my students 3-4 days to complete all three assignments. For your more advanced students, you can offer extra credit for a 4th box/assignment of their choice. Students staple all assignments together and turn in at end of project work period.This is aligned with standards, but also gives your creative students a chance to demonstrate what they know through creative writing, artwork, etc.
