7. Culminating Activities

Each book is read and explored over the course of four weeks. During the fifth week, Section 5 challenges the reader to develop a creative culminating project with options that provide a variety of ways for them to demonstrate deep understanding of the book. Students not only have a chance to demonstrate their originality, organization, clarity of purpose, and critical thinking skills, more importantly this culminating endeavor will allow them to show off what they have learned in their own, uniquely creative way.

Students really love sharing their culminating thoughts about great stories. Encouraging readers to create Section 5 projects with a high level of execution teaches them that their ideas are valuable and builds integrity into their work.

Take a look at our Flickr page for some great examples of culminating activities. We'd love for you to share your ideas.
