I use this project with my students after we have discussed & learned about theme in literature. Students complete a project that exemplifies the theme of the novel they are reading (in my class it is for an outside novel, but it could also be a novel you read as a class). They have to identify the theme, support it with three pieces of textual evidence, and create some kind of physical representation (collage, timeline, soundtrack, etc.).
Aligns with CCSS RL 1 Cite several pieces of textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
Aligns with CCSS RL 2 Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze its development over the course of the text
