Surviving the Applewhites Unit

We have completed our very first novel together, and overall students seemed to enjoy it. For this novel, students have a bit of choice for their final projects. They can bring Jake Semple down from Rhode Island to Raleigh, North Carolina on a road trip, learn more about the butterflies mentioned in the text, perform a mini-movie or skit of a few memorable scenes, construct several writing pieces that include a prequel, a sequel, or research the importance of birth order in a family, or create a fake Instagram with posts/comments/likes of some of their favorite moments within our story.

Remember: All projects are in class, in school assignments 🙂 I look forward to sharing some of their finished pieces with you soon.
