The purpose of this task is to relate the different themes in the readings over the course of the class to personal experiences. It makes literature matter by integrating content and application by connecting abstract ideas and themes of literature throughout the year.
The task will be a year-long/semester long task that will allow students to continuously work and improve. At the end of the project, students are able to look back and reflect on the lessons learned through the semester and review what they have learned and how literature has affected their lives and the way they view the world.
This document contains my personal example of the units I used with this project along with my reflection and the assignment pages I used to implement the project. This project can be used for all students, but is particularly helpful for Gifted students.
