Body Biography: Creative Summative Assessment

The Body Biography is a creative summative assessment that measures a student's understanding of character, symbolism, and passage analysis.

Students employ the following skills.

Determine text meaning and make logical inferences.
For each body part students need to infer the relationship between the text meaning and that body part. “Why does this action represent the heart?” This encourages students to reflect on how the author’s language relates to story action and to their own interpretation.

Determine central themes and analyze their development.
The response in each “body part” component is related to a central theme of the novel. How students relate these themes to different parts represents a significant critical thinking exercise.

Cite specific evidence to support analysis.
Students generate quotes from the text to support their responses.

Analyze how and why individuals, events, or ideas develop and interact.
Each response is supported with a “why” explanation. This requires students to analyze the motivations behind specific events and their personal motivations for associating an event to a “body part.”

Assess how reasoning and evidence supports the author and reader’s point of view.
Each response requires an analysis. In addition, students are imbedding their personal points of view and reactions into each response.
