Essential Questions:

How can literature change the active reader and writer?

How can the application of story elements and figurative language shape the active
reader and writer?


DUE January 8th

Throughout this unit, we will practice reading and writing skills that help us identify
story elements and figurative language. Now, as a project-based assignment using
these reading and writing strategies, you will create a childrens, middle school, or
young adult book that highlights the concepts we have studied so far this year. From
incorporating elements to reflect the genre of a story to using figurative language to
emphasize details and entertain the targeted audience, you will produce a thoughtful
and creative childrens, middle school, or young adult book using PowerPoint, Google
Presentations, Google Docs, Word, or handwriting as your medium. You will turn in
your book along with a reflection explaining what you learned from this experience.
The requirements are as follows. This work must be original with the exception of fan
fiction, or conditional writing preapproved by me in advance. Direct plagiarism will
result in a zero on the assignment.
