Bring Your Own Device, Dog, & Deconstruction of Literature: 8 pARTS and Creative Writing with Research. Before I share today's 9th grade writing lesson with you all, I have to give a big, huge, ginormous SHOUT OUT to my edifying edu-buddy Cheryl Morris and the indomitable Jon Corippo.

But, I'm a bit of a stickler for visual design and the layout of paper (dare I say the dreaded word) worksheets, I adapted Corippo's design and created my own template that included a space for the picture and grouped the parts of speech to designate relationships visually. The talented Cheryl Morris created a rubric for the writing task, and I snagged this too, tweaking it for my class.

This project integrates multiple intelligence and different learning abilities of the students, and is based around the theme of television.
The main objective is to enable the students to write an illustrated short story and present it in class. Time: at least 3 periods (40 minutes/period) Materials: 11 sheets A4 paper, 1 medium size box (a bit larger than a shoebox), 2 pcs sticks (longer than the width of the box), 1 sheet acetate plastic cover, scissors, glue and coloring materials Writing the story and designing the box In the process of making the TV, students will have to use both their artistic and writing skills. Instruct the students to brainstorm and write an original 10-page short story. Because time is limited, let the students assign who will write and draw the story and who will create and design the improvised TV.
