Novel Projects

Facilitated by Mrs. Farber & Mrs. Jenkins

Students in ELA2 created projects to illustrate a major theme/character/symbol/motif in a novel that they studied this semester. Some students created Found Poetry–pieces built entirely from words of the novel to convey new meaning. Some students created using “Beautiful Sentences”--using the words of the author to illustrate a major symbol of the novel. Others created Character Autopsies–deep dives into character study, or One Pagers. All students were asked to blend the words of the author, their own ideas/understandings, and a visual/ illustrated element to help convey their analysis.
