To Kill a Mockingbird Character collages (9CP)
Using Google Drawings, students worked in pairs in the computer lab to create a collaborative collage reflecting the traits of a character from To Kill a Mockingbird. They needed to include images that reflected the character's interests and personality, as well as quotes from the book that showed something important about the character's identity. The goal was to connect the book to the central question of English 9: "Who am I and How do I Know?"

Choice Book Project (9H)
After completing a choice reading unit, students worked in groups to create final projects. The groups below selected the photo collage option. Using Google Presentations, they decided on the theme of the novel and showcased this theme using images and quotes from the book. This assignment came after we discussed the definition of a theme and how to determine possible themes in literature.



Romeo and Juliet Social Networking Pages (9CP)
As we read William Shakespeare's famous play, Romeo and Juliet, students worked independently using Google Drawings to create mock social networking pages for a chosen character. Many chose to model their sites after Facebook and spent a great deal of time working to create as close a replica as possible. There were many creative products!

Romeo and Juliet Sonnets (9CP/9H)
As we read William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, we discussed the fact that he wrote 154 sonnets, fourteen-line poems that were usually about love. We discussed the specific rhyme scheme and rhythm and then students had the chance to create their own sonnets. They could write about any topic they chose.
