Final Performance Task: Character Confessional Narrative

You wrote it, now what? Learners take their writing to the next level when they perform it for classmates. They then engage in a self-reflection and assessment of their work to determine how well they hit targets such as identifying themes of a literary text, developing a central idea throughout the text, and producing clear, coherent writing for the appropriate task and audience.
