Product Description
This magazine project (w/ included rubric for grading) is an engaging and creative project to get students thinking in the ways of "old New York." In completing this project, students write several articles for a "society magazine" that helps them look at the culture and customs of the Gilded Age in New York City. While it is a creative project, it also asks students to read closely and use direct quotes from the text to support their creation. The project is set up as partially group/collaborative and partially individual, however, it could easily be adapted to become a project for individuals alone or groups alone. Another advantage of this assessment is that it can be used at any point while reading the novel. This project is a great way into the text to help students better understand the society depicted in the novel, it could be used as a culminating assessment, or somewhere in between. Overall a great way to help students gain access to a rich, but sometimes difficult novel.

Keywords: The Age of Innocence, Gilded Age, novel, writing, project, assessment, creative, activity, group, individual, analysis, close reading, character, article, Wharton, Edith Wharton
