High school English

What are some projects you’ve done that kids enjoyed and got into? We’re studying civil rights before we read To Kill a Mockingbird and aren’t doing essays. Best project ideas?

A DASH project for end of year seniors. Based on the dash on the tombstone between dates of birth and death. We look at it from the standpoint of leaving childhood and entering adulthood. There’s about 4 mini projects attached to that. They choose 1 to share with class (after doing all of them). 4 modes of work (creative poster, written, electronic, etc.) With lit circles there’s a project we do with talk show and author, talk show with characters, game show for content or theme (presentation format, not just a Kahoot!), emergency room community board with pamphlets for issue. I like to use PowerPoint and Google Slides as a way to present information rather than a report or essay.

We acted out the courtroom scene from TKM. Another end assignment is to take Atticus’ closing argument and cut it down to the most essential words. First they cut half of the words. Then they cut half of that. Then they cut it down to a tweet. Great way to analyze the text. They then write justification for their cuts.

Civil Rights - I love this topic! I had mine create a multi-media project about a person involved in civil rights/social justice. I have a list of about 100 names. Great presentations on Adobe Spark Page.

Anyone like/dislike their Dyson V8/V10/V11 vacuum? Does it still get a lot of hair tangled in the brush like normal upright corded vacuums? Debating between that and a Shark self-cleaning brush one
