In this project based unit student's will be asked to make text to self connections when using Neil Pasricha's Book of Awesome as an inspiration for their own creative writing. Students will work independently and collaboratively towards a shared goal of creating a published final product that features writing from every student.
This project focuses on the writing process, voice, style, conventions, purpose and audience.
Included is assessment as, of and for learning in the form of self and peer assessment as well as a rubric.
Overall and specific expectations in addition to big idea, learning goals and success criteria have all been suggested to assist in co-creating these with your class.
Handouts and even a template for a writing journal and tech tips can all be found in the appendices of this digital document.
I hope that you enjoy this AWESOME collaborative project with your class!
