Miss Piagesi and Mrs. Burns worked with students to create several project-based assessments to complete both the short story and non-fiction units. Students were able to work either individually or in groups to combine text, images, and music using Animoto to retell their chosen short story.

The non-fiction project required students to create a brochure in Pages using several elements from each portion of the unit. Students were also offered the opportunity to create a movie project.
