Something creative, directly but imaginatively related to the literary works we have read.
A Twitter feed, as written by characters during the riot in Invisible Man?
A Facebook profile page for The Brotherhood?
Retell an important scene as a graphic novel or a Lego diorama.
Bring in your guitar and sing the blues.
Perform an interpretive dance, representing Ruthie and Winfield's encounter with the toilets in The Grapes of Wrath?
Make a YouTube video, in which Dr. Phil invites Sylvia Plath and the Young Woman from Machinal onto his talk show.
What would The Young Woman's wedding have been like? What would the murder scene have been like? Write a scene that wasn't in the original play.
Write a response to "My Papa's Waltz," from the perspective of the frowning wife, or the state child welfare board, or the child as a grown man dancing with his own child.
The actual project does not have to be written, but please do submit an written explanation in the Turnitin.com slot.
