We are knee deep in the historical novel project. Most students are doing incredible work. Novels are being finished, research is being conducted, and awesome connections between the two are being discovered. It’s been fun to watch!
Novels are due to be completed by Monday, and the graphic organizers we have been working on this week in Google Drive are due next Friday, March 10. Students will have some class time next week but should be working on these at home as well.
There will be an assessment on Friday to assess students’ knowledge of the work we have been doing for the project. The majority of the assessment will be on fiction reading comprehension (characterization, plot, conflict, setting, etc). These are topics we have been reviewing and working on while reading our novels. There will also be a portion on nonfiction research connected to the research we have been conducting for our project.
Please let me know if you have questions about anything. Have a great weekend!
