    Literature-inspired Notebook Celebrations
    I'm trying something new this school year (2013-2014). When we finish a play or novel or short story, I am going to require my students to add a creative summary of that play or novel that we have finished. Here are some of my first examples.

    We always start with a short mythology unit. My seventh graders study Hercules, and we divvy up the labors in his story, each student documenting a different one in his/her notebook. On notebook "show and tell" day, the students review the twelve labors by moving from seat to seat and reading each other's summaries of his twelve labors. Here is 7th grader Hannah's page.
