Use this creative, fun project with almost any middle school novel. Students create a Survival Guide booklet based on the problems and solutions in the novel. It requires students to read, identify problems & solutions, gather relevant text, embed text, cite text, do outside research using non-fiction sources, and write descriptively. Students can self select the problems to focus on and the outside research to use. Task sheet, graphic organizer, survival guide page template, rubric, written portion model, and outside research article included. You can modify this by simply changing the book title and author to fit with the novel your class is reading.
