We all have students with diverse needs and learning styles. When I teach the memoir A Child Called "IT" by David Pelzer 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.
If you have any questions feel free to ask.
This product is included in my unit for the memoir listed here:
