Are your students tired of reading material that you assign? My students LOVE the flexibility of this unit and project. It requires them to use higher-level thinking skills and creativity!
This comprehensive product can be used with ANY novel. The product contains the following:
-A step-by-step guide with tips and tricks
-A letter for the teacher to give students with expectations listed and an extra credit option
-A 9 page student packet to use with a novel of choice
-A comprehensive list of final project choices
--A letter for the teacher to give students with expectations listed without an extra credit option
This product is designed for a student to use on a novel of choice for a four week period. The associated final project may take longer depending on if students are working as they read the book or if they wait until they finish. Concepts students are expected to apply in the student packet:
--Vocabulary--definition, connotation/denotation, synonym/antonym
--Personal response to reading
--Author research using reliable sources and MLA citation
--Figurative Language Analysis
--Critical Response (Review of Book)
The best thing is that this is self-paced, so differentiation is built in!
This is a great culminating project to assess student learning of concepts taught earlier in the year and breadth of knowledge on content!
