This product includes 17 project options with checklists. The projects focus on character and plot analysis. The checklists can also be used to grade the projects.
The preview shows six project options as a sample. You can give these options to the students or let them choose from the list of 17. The projects can be completed at home or in school in a few days.
The Common Core standards met in these projects are:
Cite the textual evidence that most strongly supports an analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze its development over the course of the text, including its relationship to the characters, setting, and plot; provide an objective summary of the text.
Analyze how particular lines of dialogue or incidents in a story or drama propel the action, reveal aspects of a character, or provoke a decision.
I have also included a template for a Wanted Poster and some extra credit options that I give students at the end of the novel.
