I was looking for a project like this. I am converting it to the Count of Monte Cristo for my 10th grade students. Thank you for such a well-thought out way of exploring a student's understanding of character with a digital and written component!

Worked out great! This was a very helpful outline for how to go about reading the book quickly and helping the students to make sure they retained the knowledge for the assessment. I liked the ideas of different possible projects. NICE! Keep 'em comin'!!!
