Symbolism Book Project and Paper Outline

The assessment for any book or novel asks students to create a Ukrainian Easter egg or Pysanka which is an egg covered in wax and dyed. The dye and wax make pictures or designs on the egg. Of course the egg could just be drawn on also. But make a Pysanka is a great experience for students. Students are expected to make pictures and colors that symbolize different events, characters, and themes in the story. Along with their egg, they are required to write a short paper explaining how their choices represent the story. This project and paper will take between 3 to 6 days depending on how much time you plan, dye, and write. At the end of the project, students will give a short presentation, presenting their eggs and the symbolism.


I work exclusively with at-risk students, this means they are usually working well below grade level. I created this “outline” to help students who are unfamiliar or uncomfortable with the writing process, however, works well as a starter or first draft for any writer. The “outline” walks the student through the essay paragraph by paragraph and sentence by sentence. The outline explain what to write with a prompt and provides an example sentence


Example:
Why did you chose those colors and how do they represent the story/characters. Example: On the bottom of the egg, I used blue and green to represent Earth and the people on it. At the top of the egg, I colored it in orange/red that symbolizes the alien home world and the buggers. The space in between the two is black, representing not only space, but the distance between the two species.

If completed properly, the student has a first draft that they can type up and start peer editing or a second draft. There are a grading rubric and formatting requirements that not only make the paper more formal but require many different settings be changed in order to familiarize the student with a word processor program.



This also includes 3 formal lesson plans for the project they are written to 9th/10th common core but can be easily adapted for use in other grades.
