As we shift towards the demands of the new Common Core State Standards, our focus has turned to text features and students learning to use text features to assist in their comprehension of more complex text. This is a multi-week text features magazine project in the form of a personal narrative writing piece. After teaching students about text features, this project will allow them to put their knowledge to good use and create their own magazine about themselves!
This magazine project is ideal for use with Microsoft Publisher (template just added!!) and is five pages in length. It focuses on the student's life from birth, strengths, weaknesses, friendships, dreams, fears, and their life so far.
Text features included are titles, inserts, headings, subheadings, bold-faced words, photos, captions, maps, logos, table of contents and glossary.
Rubric and student planning pages are included!
