Curation: The action or process of selecting, organizing, and looking after the items in a collection or exhibition.
Students will create 3 CCSS-aligned projects (Historical Background on , Part One of the book, Part Two of the book) to demonstrate understanding of the novel and "curate" their very own museum of artifacts. Topics vary and follow themes and ideas as seen in , from racism and justice to The Great Depression and The Scottsboro Boys. Students have choice on which topic they want to represent, as well as choice to create different "artifacts" to show what they know, including: a podcast, a video, a multimedia "top 10" mix, a newspaper and more.
Included are rubrics, exit slips, feedback forms, voting forms, group station labels, daily lesson plans and a detailed assignment sheet. I used this in my English 9 classes and my students came up with some seriously cool projects.
