About this Document
As a unique way to assess student comprehension of a reading assignment (generally a large one), I created a project I simply call the Art Project for "whatever piece we've read". There are multiple pages to this, as I've created an assignment sheet for the students with a grading rubric for each style of project they can complete. To get the complete assignment packet, look for the following uploads (to be given to the kids) Levi's Art Project - Collages Levi's Art Project - Costumes, Clothing, and Masks Levi's Art Project - Create A Character Levi's Art Project - Film/Videos Levi's Art Project - Games Levi's Art Project - Models and Sculptures Levi's Art Project - Movie Posters Levi's Art Project - Musical Compositions Levi's Art Project - Paintings, Drawing, Art Levi's Art Project - Scrapbooks Levi's Art Project - Storyboards/Graphic Novels Levi's Art Project - Timelines Levi's Art Project - Websites Levi's Art Project - Written Compositions I've also amended the assignment to work specifically for Macbeth if that's something you teach. That project sheet can be found under Levi's Art Project - Macbeth Final Project Options. The actual rubrics were all created using Rubistar. All other pieces of this assignment are completely original, so feel free to adapt this to your needs. You won't hurt my feelings. :)
