A collection of 12 projects related to the story “the Monkey's Paw" by W.W. Jacobs Students complete one or more projects in the following categories: Create, Storytelling, and Evaluate. Rubrics included. Allows for student or teacher led differentiation or assignment.
Projects are divided into three categories: Create, Storytelling, and Evaluate. Grading rubrics included for each category.
This collection of projects is delivered in two formats, with the same projects on each: Student Contract and Task Cards. The Student Contract has students select from categories to meet a required number of stars. Stars can then be converted to your classroom grading system. The Task Cards offer greater flexibility for classroom use as they can be cut apart and handed out in groups or together.
Computer/ tablet usage, art supplies, copies of the text and movie making equipment are recommended.
