This product consists of three separate book projects you can use with your students. These projects are all creative responses to novels, but each includes a writing component as well.
The three projects are:
1) Creating a book packet that includes an alternate cover, book review, plot summary, and quote analysis.
2) Designing a t-shirt representative of the novel. Students will include pictures and symbols that represent important aspects of the novel. An essay accompanies the t-shirt.
3) A bag project. Students design a paper bag and include pictures or objects that represent the narrative and thematic elements of the novel. An oral presentation accompanies this project.
This packet includes the instructions for each project, a rubric for each project, and a template for the t-shirt design project.
I have used each of these projects with my own students. They produce thoughtful analyses of many different novels, as well as the opportunity for students to express themselves creatively.
