PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

After reading Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes, students respond, react, and reflect on the text in this activity. In Charlie Gordon’s Annotated Scrapbook, students assume the voice of Charlie Gordon and create a ten-page scrapbook from his point of view in which they compose three pieces of writing relating to the literature (a progress report, a letter from one character to another, and a newspaper article about the experiment). In addition, students do some (fun) research, write poetry, and express themselves in other creative ways. After creating the scrapbook pages, students annotate each page for further explanation.

The writing is designed to have flexibility built in. The three main pieces of writing can be taught with prewriting, composing, and revising occurring individually, as a whole class, or in writing circles. I have taught it all three ways, depending on the class.

This activity allows for lots of creativity and expression – have fun with this one!
