About this title


Open the pages of this book, turn to a project, and begin immediately to make accessible and interesting once-difficult classics such as Shakespeare's Macbeth, Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn, Dickens Tale of Two Cities, Golding's Lord of the Flies, Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, or Shakespeare's Hamlet.. These student-generated projects empower students to take charge of their own learning and see the contemporary relevance of great literature. They include detailed instructions for studying the literature by creating a newspaper, holding an election campaign, conducting a grand jury investigation, writing and performing a screen play, composing modern parallels, and developing a TV literary talk show.

Included are specific lessons designed to foster active reading skills and promote critical analysis and problem solving. Students also receive writing process instruction, work collaboratively as well as independently, and learn to reflect and assess their own work..
