Ongoing Factory Book Lesson

It will contain:
— A Cover designed by the student of the outside of Wonka’s factory
— 4 rooms from the novel and a paragraph on them
— 1 room self-designed by the student for an imagined candy to be made and a paragraph on them.

Procedures: Throughout the reading of the novel following readings about the 4 rooms the teacher will direct students to work on the factory book in-class and follow the rubric that is stapled at its end. The teacher will go over the rubric prior to beginning.
