This is a really fun project that I give to go along with "Jake, Reinvented".
It's based off a quote in the novel about a room being a mirror to a person's soul...I took that quote and made it into a MEDIA and WRITTEN assignment.
They make a poster of their room, and do a 3 paragraph write-up based on:
-A description of their room
-5 key items in their room and what they reflect about them
-Describing their dream room.
Sometimes I've had them make the poster of their dream room - it could easily be tweaked to fit their needs and what makes them excited.
They turn out great!
