Story Elements & Genre Project
This project is an assessment that students do after they have learned about Story elements and genre. We watch a fantasy movie (Ella Enchanted is a good choice), students will take notes identifying the different elements of both the story and the genre. Afterward, students will make a make a proposal for their project and review it with the teacher (this can be skipped and everyone can do a default project). The default project is a booklet, the student takes the booklet and draw pictures and write out definitions and explanations. This is a great project that I have done for the past 3 years, students seem to really enjoy it.
