After reading Saints at the River by Ron Rash, students will work together in a group of four to develop a newspaper that accurately features the characters, setting, plot, and conflicts of the novel.
Although students will work in a group, each will choose his/her own role and be graded independently. The roles include writing a news article, town/river feature, opinion pieces, and illustrator.
Because there are four different roles that appeal to different learning styles and strengths, this project is greatly differentiated.
Rubrics for each role are included.
