This project goes with the book Freak the Mighty. I have made a menu that allows several choices for the students to select products that connect with the book to share their understanding and connection to the literature.
There are ten items for the C Level work and they deal with modalities of learning from art, music, science/engineering, and acting
There are three items in the B level work that are more researched based.
The three items in the A level work require adult conversation so that the student has to analyze and synthesize their thinking with his or her own.
I have used this lesson plan for nine years and I have learned so much about my students and they have really enjoyed the choice that it provides.
I know the example is not the best but I went to a conference and somebody there was discussing how they used "his" lesson to engage students and it was mine!!!! (Not kidding) So I went back and edited it and all my other examples back. (I also share with him that I was the owner and he was rather embarrassed.)
