Reflection: Performance Tasks Smart Phone Literature Project Day One - Section 2: Small-Group Collaboration: Smart Phone Literature Project


This project requires students to demonstrate their knowledge of literary works over time. They must demonstrate their learning through product creation and presentation. Over the last four years, I have used this project with highly proficient and struggling readers. It provides a collaborative, non-threatening setting in which students revisit literary texts through a contemporary, technology-based lens.
