We all have students with diverse needs and learning styles. When I teach the memoir I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings I often give them project choices at the end of the book. In this handout students pick from five different projects. This way students have more fun with the assignment. There is a rubric to go along with the project list.
This is a great book to teach during Black History Month or Women's History Month.
