PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Scrapbook Project is an engaging resource throughout your Tom Sawyer unit. Students can complete this tic-tac-toe style project during the bellringer phase of class or as a stand-alone project, eventually completing tasks from three categories: Recall, Create, and Analyze. Students are also required to do two creative writing prompts based on the novel. This choice-board style allows student freedom while still adding rigor to your unit.

You can use this resource in student notebooks or as a stand-alone. If assigning this in Interactive Notebooks or student journals, you can designate a certain number of pages for students to complete the tasks.

Here's a sample from each column:

Recall -- 1. List three superstitions. This asks students to simply recall a process (for example, undoing a witch’s curse) described by one of the characters.

Create -- 1. Draw and use a quote showing direct characterization. This asks students to base their drawings in textual evidence. They also practice MLA-style citation: “She had golden hair and blue eyes” (26).

Analyze -- 1. Two quotes that show indirect characterization using S-T-E-A-L. I taught indirect characterization using the acronym STEAL for Speech-Thoughts-Effect on Others-Actions-Looks, but you could change this prompt to reflect your method. Students practice identifying indirect characterization and analyzing its effect.

Timing:
I’ve done this sort of project different ways, but here is one suggestion. Give students a “target” number of entries to complete each week (for example, four entries) and then award them a certain number of points as a “checkpoint” grade. This helps keep students on task during journal time.

This resource is included in my Tom Sawyer Unit for Interactive Notebooks!
