PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Writing is a cognitive task that can be used to facilitate and assess student learning. During the writing process, students can develop a better understanding of a concept or idea. As an assessment, writing outcomes can be used to evaluate what students already know about a topic or what they have learned.

Writing projects can provide opportunities for students to improve their questioning, discussion, synthesizing, note-taking, paraphrasing, and summarizing skills. While working on their projects, students will use technology to conduct research and publish their work.

This packet includes ideas for two writing projects.
• Interview
• Celebrity Memoir

These writing projects can be modified as needed based on specific grade level and student populations as well as available resources. Another modification is to require that students work with a partner or small group for the projects. Then they will get a group grade for each project. Finally, each project can be adapted for use with the current novel – students will complete the projects based on individuals and ideas encountered in the text(s) read in class. For example, rather than selecting an interviewee from the Time 100 list, teachers can instruct students to select an interviewee from the class novel. The same adaptation can occur for the memoir assignment.
