To clarify, I'm creating a project for my summer session (we're a year-round school) that will give students a chance to read either Dracula, Frankenstein, or Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde. I'm extremely excited about this idea because I did a similar project last summer on dystopian literature and it went well. This time, I've found all three books available under a single cover (major money saver, especially when kiddos change their minds on selections) AND also found graphic novel versions of each that are designed to aid student through Common Core curriculum. I'll share any / all of this information if anyone is interested. I would like to chunk the work into the following modules: Biography of the author (this will come in handy later) Chapter questions (to me, they are guided notes) Vocabulary (use a minimum of ten words from the novel in original sentences, preferably creatively) Media comparison with a film adaptation (Jekyll & Hyde is the one with the biggest changes, IMHO) Character Map (I have a template for students to complete on a major character's journey through the action of the novel) Oral Book Review (I'd prefer to make this groups discussing their selections as a dialogue) Research Project It's this last one I'm having trouble phrasing properly. Each of the three novels has a distinct true story that inspired the writing, so reasearching that could be a great idea. Finding examples of how the novel has affected culture is another one. Does anyone have any really solid ideas on how to phrase this assignment?
