This download contains a project over Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried. This is a great way to assess the kids understanding of the novel. This project allows the students to select the projects they want to do! Fifteen projects have been offered to the the students. Each project has a point value associated with it. The students must select fifty points worth of projects. They can choose whatever they want... as long as it equals fifty points! The projects consist of art projects, creative writing, research, and technical writing. Detailed instructions and a rubric have been included. You can adjust the length of time it takes to complete the project.
This project can be easily modified for differently-abled students. I have found that this assessments is a great way to test students of varying abilities in a manner in which they are comfortable.
