Student Projects to Make You Smile

My students had an open ended project where they had to compare two character from The Catcher in the Rye to two character from anything we read this year. They also needed to find a shared theme between The Catcher in the Rye and another book. They were allowed to use any medium of their choosing to demonstrating understanding. Here are two that stood out.

I've always suggested to students that they do interpretive dance as a project choice and students always laugh it off. After 15 years, I finally received my first Interpretive Dance project and it was worth the wait. Sit back and enjoy.

This next one shows how any medium can be used to tell a story. Two students wanted to use Sims to to show their understanding and it was awesome. I just love seeing the creativity in my students and the excitement they have when they get "that" idea that is going to drive them in understanding and sharing that understanding with class. 

These are just a couple of reasons why I teach. Have a great day!
