If your middle school students are reading the fantastically funny book THE FOURTH STALL by Chris Rylander, then this is the perfect project for your class! It meets modern day Common Core learning standards, while also providing students with choice and a variety of ways to demonstrate their understanding and knowledge of the book.
This product is a 3 x 3 menu board. Students are asked to choose 3 activities (though the center piece is required for everyone to do) to complete. Included is a venn diagram to assist in a comparative activity as well as directions and a template for the required activity known as the "one-pager."
I am certain this project is exactly what you are looking for!
*** This could also be used for lit centers!
