Do you need help adding anchor texts and supplemental texts to your Common Core units? This project is differentiated and allows students to choose the text according to their level and abilities. My students LOVE opening wrapped books and it really helps the morale in the classroom. I usually use this project at the midway point to keep learning fun and engaging. I also call this Independent Novel Project a "Blind Date with a Book" and post stuff around my room to correspond with this theme. It's a great way to get not only students involved but also other faculty members and administration.
