I first must give partial credit for this idea to my sister in law, Kim. Parts of this lesson were taken from a lesson she does in her summer program. I wanted to use the ideas but could not find a place to slip it in to my curriculum. Then I racked my brain one night before coming up with a way to use the pieces as part of my research project lesson. By adding, 2 small written assignments that required the students to conduct a few days of research and create note cards, etc., I was able to create an assignment that my English 10 students actually seem to be enjoying. There are six parts to the assignment, and it takes about 3 weeks to complete all of them. I recommend using Google Docs or a Moodle to contain all of the parts as the students progress.
