Project: Book report

Secondary cycle one, year two

Book chosen: Tom Sawyer
Grouping: Class is divided in teams of 3
Purpose: Students read book at home and work on wikis in class to acquaint students with literature.
Duration: throughout the semester.
Each wiki is protected.


Each week, students (teams) read a chapter in the designated book.

Each team member has a role (roles change each week)
Writer (Student A) - writes the chapter summary
Editor (Student B)- edits and handles the layout
Proofreader (Student C) - corrects mistakes (spelling, grammar, etc.)
The teacher monitors the wikis on a weekly basis to ensure that the work is getting done and that students are on track.

At the end of the semester, the wikis are unlocked and other teams read and evaluate the other teams' wikis (peer evaluation).
Students evaluate their team members (peer evaluation 2)
Students evaluate themselves (self-evaluation)


Week 1: During the first week, student A writes the summary of chapter one. The other members can not edit anything yet, so they will have to complete their tasks at home. (Student B- edits and handles the layout, student C- corrects mistakes.)

Week 2: Student B writes the summary of chapter two. Student C edits and handles the layout and student A corrects mistakes.
