Product Description
Although I use this product in my classroom as a group project, it is very versatile and can be used as an individual project. I have created the project in WORD so it can be easily edited to fit your needs. Either way, the project is such an effective way to assess your students’ comprehension and analysis of a novel.

I use this project with the novel, The Coffin Quilt by Ann Rinaldi. Thematically, it could easily be used with any novel about slavery, the Underground Railroad, or Appalachian themed literature. However, it can honestly be used with any novel.

I start by making ten copies of each of the quilt squares. I paperclip these together. I place the piles upside down.

Usually, I introduce the project to the students and explain how to create the quilt. I review over every element of the project including the grading rubric before I break them into groups. Once groups have been determined and job papers have been completed, groups blindly pick a pack of quilt squares. I make more than enough copies of the quilt square in case students need another copy due to mistakes. Each group will have to determine how to organize the information on each quilt square. This part of the project is a higher level skill, and you may want to differentiate for some students by filling in parts of their quilt squares.

Additionally, I add another element of fun into the project. We have a “quilt show”. The paper quilts are hung in the hallway and then I have other teachers judge the quilts. I place ribbons on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. Each member of the ribbon earning teams, receives extra credit.
