Students have created some stunning projects for our Reading Literature for Future Teachers class. Recently, they chose a young adult/children’s book author to study and then created multimodal projects representing the texts. Here are a few of my favorites:
Erina Dominick and Kristie Weibling created a “mixed tape” of the songs featured in Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park. The book is set in 1986 and many readers may not be familiar with the songs that are so important to these characters. Erina and Kristie’s soundtrack helps to bring the story to life.
Chia Lor developed a website featuring author Sharon Creech.
Thankful to students for all the creative work they put into our class. More examples can be found here: http://www.kimjaxon.com/engl341/
