The following two technology assignments are to be used after reading and discussing Robert Browning's classic THE PIED PIPER OF HAMELIN. This is a perfect story for grades 5-9 and focuses on great personal values like honesty and integrity.
The two included assignments are:
1 - POWER POINT / PREZI - this rubric is for a 10-slide student created presentation that focuses on key aspects of the story like: character, setting, problem/solution, and moral.
2 - STORY QUESTIONS - this 8-question assignment can be handwritten but I use it as an Ms-Word typing assignment to allow students to incorporate pictures/creativity to their work beyond simply thinking past the text.
It's a classic story and if you incorporate both assignments along with in-class reading/discussion this will take 3-4 days to complete in full.
