The Heritage Middle School 7th grade Language Arts classes worked on bringing a classic novel to life in a very collaborative way. They focused on Charles Dicken’s, A Christmas Carol. After reading and analyzing the adapted novella and comparing it to the film version, all 7th grade classes worked together for the final project.
They had the opportunity to personalize their learning by selecting options from a learning menu. They then worked together to write an adapted version of the classic tale while personalizing the final story, they still had to maintain the theme, “The Spirit of Giving”. The students had to focus on the theme of a person’s transformation from bad to good. The project culminated with group media presentations or live performances.
