Students need help understanding what it means
to extend the experience of reading a book. You can guide
students to grasp the goal of an extension project if you help them
understand that a project must supplement and deepen what the student
got out of the reading, discussion, and written response. And, because
extension projects are meant to be shared with others, students
need to understand how their project can affect others' experiences
of the book
The following guiding questions can
help your students plan projects that provide a true extension of
the literary experience:
Guiding Questions for Students:
Planning Extension Projects
- How will my project show what I
have learned from the book?
- In what ways will my project include
information from the book?
- When people view my project, what
will they learn about the book?
