The Literary Maven: End of the Year Project Idea: Literary Theme Park

At the end of one school year, my principal announced that she wanted to see us all engaged in project based learning. It was the new buzz word, though not as popular as it is now, and despite having final units and weeks planned, we were now supposed to add a project into the mix. My students had just wrapped up reading and acting out Romeo and Juliet. And now we were engaged in a mini-argument essay on teenagers and their decision making capabilities. Finals were soon approaching. I wasn't…
