This project can be used as a summative assessment or just as a fun, creative project! Now includes a fillable PDF option for distance learning!
This project was previously included as an exclusive resource in my Wonder comprehension test bundle, but I decided to make it a stand-alone product so that more teachers can benefit from this creative writing assignment!

What are my recommendations for use in your classroom?
◾ This document has been set up for double-sided printing. Any blank pages in the document were added intentionally to make double-sided printing easy.
◾ I explain detailed suggested instructions inside the document on the Teacher Instructions pages. However, I recommend that this project be assigned as a summative assessment after reading the entire novel.
◾ Students will be tasked with choosing a character whose perspective wasn't shared in the novel and writing a chapter extension to the book from that character's perspective. I recommend having students write rough drafts, peer or teacher editing the rough drafts, and having students write their final copies after fixing errors found in the editing process. Specific instructions/recommendations for length, plot, inferences, and more are explained in detail in the student overview sheet and the project rubric.
◾ You can alter the student instructions in the editable PDF. Then, you can export the PowerPoint file to a PDF so that you can send it to your students (via email, Google Classroom, etc.).
◾ The student-facing pages include text boxes that students can type into for their brainstorming, rough drafts, and final copies. Most of these text boxes have been enabled with multiple lines (single spacing) and scrolling.
◾ There are also fillable text boxes for students' names, the date, and the class period (if applicable). You can fill in the name text box for each student before sending out the test, if you like, but that will add more work in individually assigning each personalized copy of the PDF to each student.
◾ Assign the project to students via email, Google Classroom, or whatever Learning Management System (LMS) your school/district uses.
◾ You will need to manually grade the completed PDF projects.
