You will be reading a novel of your choosing (teacher approved of course,) but ultimately this should be something you WANT to read.
For right now, you should be focused on getting the book read. You will be completing a project that will be much like a book trailer. Ms. Addison (from the media center) and I are working on a compiled list of projects for you to choose from. In those projects you will need to reveal elements of literature such as: themes, conflicts, characterization, tone and mood.
