Created by Eric Triche. This is a great culminating project for literature circle groups. When they are finished reading, they work together to create a persuasive review of their book. The group works together to write the essay, and each student must contribute two paragraphs...based on the different elements of fiction (characters, setting, plot summary, conflict, theme). The students are graded on their individual paragraphs, but a group grade can also be given for the overall product. Also, students can present the article orally.
