End of the School Year: Looking for something to engage your students and provide opportunities for them to show what they know about what you've been teaching all year? How about playwriting or an author project? This is a good time for a long-term assignment that has interim due dates and culminates in a performance/product assessment to measure how do in relation to most of the ELA standards and to reflect their ability to demonstrate a variety of skills on the updated Bloom's Taxonomy. It is the student choice/teacher control element that makes such assignments so successful for us all. See Chapter 10 for playwriting and Language Arts tabs for an author project.
