After completing a literary circle novel, small groups of students will complete this combination media study / research project focused on a thematic element of their novel.
Essentially, students will determine what they consider to be the most important theme in their literary circle novel. They will then explore a variety of media for other texts (photos, video clips, drawings, songs, etc.) that express the same theme. They will annotate their examples, provide MLA citations, and present their findings to their classmates.
This pack includes a PowerPoint to introduce the assignment, an instructional handout for students, and a rubric for the presentations.
