What educators are saying

This is an excellent resource. Used this as a recovery extra project for a few students. Will be in my regular lesson plans from now on.
This was our final project with quarantined seniors... and it was a lovely way to wrap up our time together even though we were all at home.

Final exam time can be stressful, but it doesn't have to be boring! Ditch the multiple choice and give students a chance to reflect on how what they've learned through their reading really matters to them with this creative final exam.

You can use this in a classroom or distance learning scenario. Use the editable Google drive version students can type into for distance learning, then have them record their speeches in audio clips or Flipgrid videos to share with groups of their peers if you wish. Inside this curriculum set, you'll find a full PDF with teacher instructions, a PDF you can email to students with just their instructions, and a Powerpoint with Distance learning suggestions and the link to a Google Drive version. In short, everything you need to teach it in whatever scenario you find yourself.

From the Reviews:

  • "Great resource! I plan to add it to my Last Lecture unit."
  • "Fantastic ideas! Can't wait to try them out!"
  • "Exactly what I needed. Thanks."
  • "I'm so excited to introduce this lesson to my seniors!"

In this curriculum, you'll find the prompt for a graduation speech about how literature informs our lives, with a brainstorming sheet to get your kids started, a rubric to make grading simple, and a listener response sheet to keep the class focused as everyone gives their speeches in small groups.

Enjoy the last week of school as students work on these memorable reflections and share their literary takeaways from a year's worth of study.
