Information and Conversation for 8th graders

New Book Report Project October 21, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — jdefors @ 6:17 pm

Today, students selected a biography or an autobiography for their next independent reading selection.  The follow paragraphs provide an explanation of the project students are expected to complete:

After reading their biography or autobiography, students will create 10 open-ended interview questions for a pretend magazine interview.  Students will also have to create answers to their questions based on the information they gather from their biography/autobiography.  

Based on the subject’s sport/hobby/claim to fame, students will then choose an appropriate magazine in which this interview might be found.

Design a cover for your magazine by drawing a detailed picture of your person on it. You may complete the work by hand or you may use a computer to add other touches to make it look like an actual magazine cover.
