Option 1: Create a graphic novel with a minimum of 25 panels that reflects on one of our major topics from this course – stereotypes, assimilation into American life, cultural misunderstanding, immigrants in America, etc. Your project should include all the elements of a graphic novel, including panels, frames, gutters, usage of all types of text, hands and feet, etc. Your project should have a whole plot and at least one major character.
Your final product must be neatly designed, written, and drawn, include color, a title page, and meaningful inclusions of the content.
Option 2: Note- You MUST complete both parts of this to get credit.
Part 1 – Write a letter of advice to future Multicultural Literature students in Ms. Yeganegi’s class. Your letter should be at least 500 words long, typed, and using appropriate grammar and mechanics. You should focus on both academic and behavioral expectations – in other words, give advice about what they will learn but also about how they should act, work, etc.
Part 2 – Visual Component – Either make a video including advice to future students OR create a visual (brochure, magazine, etc.) of advice to future students. As stated above, this should include both academic and behavioral advice and should be focused on the class. Videos should be between 3-5 minutes and should be something teenagers would actually want to watch. Visuals should be in color, visually appealing, and easy to read.
Note: Turning something in does not guarantee any particular grade. These projects will be graded like any other project. Quality matters.
