This task allows students to apply literary techniques employed in a text.  Although this is for And the Mountains Echoed, it is easily adapted to fit any work of fiction.  Often students will create a wheel because information stems out from the center, but allowing more creative freedom and letting students use an object that is more specific to the text is certainly encouraged.

I am looking at this from the view of an ES SLMC (but have been a MS AIG teacher); I think the concept is creative.

*Partial integration of information literacy strategies.

*Collaboration between SLMC and teacher could be added.

*Strengths: student choice, calls for creativity

*Opportunities: Would the student be able to find 12 literary terms in a given book? (Again, I am from ES and MS.) Could possibly allow the student to create this digitally.

A good basic lesson but feel it could be a little more engaging with pictures, examples, etc. This could possibly be accomplished by collaboration with SLMC.

This project looks like a fun way to get students to review the use of language in a text. Objectives and assessment method are clear and the project is fully aligned with standard RL.4. It is also partially aligned with standard RL.2 (theme). Students have a lot of choice with the visual presentation of their wheel, adding to the motivation of the resource, and the resource is highly usable and adaptable to other texts. I wonder if this could be done as students are reading the text, so that the wheel develops gradually over the course of the reading.
