For use with any novel or short story. Students will analyze the text to identify select literary devices, including theme, main idea, and mood. Then they will use several of those elements in writing their own story. Includes options for a narrative and a graphic novel, with rubrics.

While students will write their version using the main idea of the original text, there is great opportunity for creativity. The main idea can be applied in other settings, with different endings, modernized or set in another time. The project task is similar to how movie remakes often change major features of the same main idea.
