I use this book project to review and internalize frequently used literary devices. It is based on at standard and above standard and includes more literary elements for those seeking a challenge or an above standard grade.
It cements the ideas because students make their own book of definitions with specifically quoted text from their reading and commentary that proves why that piece of evidence works to prove the literary device. It is coupled with pictures to prove their understanding.
The students LOVE this assignment! My student feedback makes this one a winner. I constantly hear things like, "Before this, I wasn't sure sometimes, but now I really understand (particular literary device)." Plus, it has an easy-to-use rubric that will make your grading painless.
As a few people have noted, a quick change or two to the assignment would make this useful for ANY genre of novel! Thanks for the feedback!
If you find this helpful, please let me know. I'd really appreciate a rating or a follow. I will be posting more of my book projects this year!
