I have 1/2 of a project created, but I'm stumped about where kids go from here. My 7th grade advanced students will be reading 2 stories. For each story (one is a novel), they have to create a Theme Chart. Basically, they will have chosen the theme of the work and found passages that support that idea. But how can we expand on this? I don't want them just to turn in the 2 worksheets; I'd rather they do something meaningful - a project that ties them together. Only I'm stuck because I can't figure out a way to work in 2 separate works and themes without them producing 2 separate projects. Our time frame is about 2 or 3 class periods (an hour each). We will not have any time for presentations after. Also, I need to avoid a writing assignment, because of some testing we're doing the following week. :help: Ideas??
