This site is an excellent source for ideas on how to write responses to (or create projects for) literature. It has been around for a long time, and I have used it many times in my classroom.

The suggestions are great ideas to begin or end a concept that would be covered throughout the year. The key to the ideas presented was writing, so the ideas would reinforce that skill. The instructor must build the activity because there were no instructions or guidance.

Technical Remarks:

The site is a very basic site that entails a list of ideas.

The suggestions on this site provided me with several new ways of incorporating different activities within the context of the primary learning objective, writing.

Technical Remarks:

Since the activities were mostly statements, I would need to develop the acitivty in context of the material being covered in the class: composition, literature, foundations, etc.
