Mr. Ehrmann's KidBlog

Poem

  • You are to write a poem to show your evidence of one of the character studies.

    · You can write 3-4 short poems if it is easier or better.

    · Poems are descriptive writing that show meaning through sensory details.

    · The poem does not have to rhyme, but should have some type of pattern in rhythm or rhyme.

Essay


· Use your RACE..ACE..ACER format to respond to the prompt. All grading and expectations will be the same as any other Text-Dependent-Analysis questions.

· You may need an extra A.C.E if you use it for the character traits.

Visual Choices

PowerPoint / Google Presentation

· The number of slides will depend on the topic you are completing.

· One slide should be focused on one specific piece of information.

· Pictures can and should be utilized, but appropriately picked and used.

· Animations other than slide transitions are not necessary.

Story Bird

· Create a story to depict each important scene from the novel to show your topic.

· Include exact quotations from the book.

· Provide a paragraph describing how this story bird scene you created relates to the topic.

· Repeat this process for all necessary parts of the topic (one for each trait, one for each conflict, one for each part of the change).

Social Media

· You are creating a fake social media account; you ARE NOT creating an account online.

· You are creating a poster to resemble a social media account.

· The information should describe the topic you are covering. Pictures and text are the graded aspect, not the design of your poster. The writing still must be adequate enough.

Video

· You can create a video to show the information on one of the topics.

· This is left open ended, whatever you can accomplish with a video camera, and go for it.

· You will need to provide a written script or organizer to show all of the information covered in the video for the topic.

Physical Choices

Diorama

· Create a diorama to depict one important scene from the book to show your topic.

· Include an exact quote from the book that the scene depicts.

· Provide a paragraph describing the necessary information for your topic.

· Repeat this process for all necessary parts of the topic (one for each trait, one for each conflict, one for each part of the change).

Picture Book

· Create a book to depict each important scene from the novel to show your topic.

· Include exact quotations from the book.

· Provide a paragraph describing how this picture book scene you created relates to the topic.

· Repeat this process for all necessary parts of the topic (one for each trait, one for each conflict, one for each part of the change).

Collage

· Create a collage to depict the topic you are covering for your novel.

· Use magazine clippings, newspapers, internet pictures, advertisements, etc. Please have variety in your clippings, not all from one source.

· Provide multiple paragraphs describing your collage including: why you selected each clipping, and how and why you organized your collage.

Poster

· Create a poster to depict the topic you are covering for your novel.

· It should not be similar to a collage; it should be very structured with organized, neat pictures and writing.

· The poster should include all the information for the topic, no additional paragraph to explain.

· The poster should include text you have written as well as pictures.
