Exciting New Assignment I’m Trying Out Today

Okay, I know we are meeting after school, BUT I just can’t wait to brag about my cool new techy assignment that I am wheeling out during 4th block today!  Magisto was a huge success with students, but I think this one will top it (well, it did for geeky me).

In our Nonfiction Literature Circles, the activity of the day will be for students to create Trading Cards of the characters (real people) from their book.  Using http://bighugelabs.com/deck.php, students can create their traiding cards.

Here is my assignment sheet:  https://docs.google.com/a/davenport.k12.ia.us/document/d/15g19ZPryPezZAigI5ePGhdq-6e-XO828iEsYJmKhFzw/edit

Here is an example related to The Great Gatsby:

The Nonfiction books students are currently reading are:  The Glass Castle, The Hot Zone, In Cold Blood, Black Boy, and Ghost Soldiers.  -Angela

    These are great too! I am going to be trying this out with students with the characters from The Odyssey and use it as a study tool for the test over the epic poem.
