This project came about as a way to make The Bluest Eye more relevant to my students. I wanted to show them that many of the social issues the novel addresses are still problems today. So, the assignment was to address one of the social issues (listed on the project) by analyzing how it is a problem, and then come up with a creative way to address that problem (hopefully in a social media format). I got some great results (including spoken word, art work, creation of community outreaches, etc.). While this project was paired with The Bluest Eye, it can be paired with another novel, or it can stand on its own. This project will require students to closely collaborate, conduct research, be creative, and work on presentation skills.
