Product Description
Are you searching for a writing project that is challenging and fun?

This file contains the assignment and grading rubric for a project I used with my senior English classes during the fourth quarter. This project idea (the journal) may be adapted to any historical or literary period, or even to a particular decade or year. However, this document is written for the Modern and Postmodern Periods.

This document is fully editable, so that you may change anything you like – from due dates to event examples to project requirements. What you see is how I did things in my classroom. Adapt it to meet your course content and teaching style. Change the required number of sources, use APA instead of MLA, increase or lower the word count requirement – whatever works for you! I even left in the due dates and points awarded (for early submission) or taken away (for late submission). Change to suit you and your class!

This project always yielded amazing, creative results, and the students had fun doing it. They especially had fun with the presentation of the project – I received everything from a message in a bottle (the “journal writer” was stranded on an island at the end of the journal) to a beautifully antiqued (they soaked the papers in tea!) turn-of-the-century journal to envelopes with letters from a “soldier” fighting in WWII.

My students worked on most of this project independently, but it also provides opportunities for teaching about:
• Journal writing
• Narrative writing
• Literary and historical journals
• 20th and 21st century history and/or literature
• Research methods
• Documentation of sources
• Working independently
• Meeting deadlines

I hope your students find this project to be as engaging as my students did. As a bonus – they are a pleasure to read and grade!
