We continued the novel study in Social Studies today; we’re more than half way through Breaking Stalin’s Nose, and students are completely engrossed in the story.
Last Thursday I assigned a project about the book that will be due on Monday, January 27. The assignment details are on a purple sheet of paper (Tab 4, #5). There are 2 parts to the project – a poem and a collage – great ways for students to creatively respond to the novel and show what they have learned about communism and the Soviet Union.
We will be finishing the book on Thursday, and students will have class time to work on the project on Friday.
