Independent Reading:

Reading three books each term will earn you 100% in the Reading component of the course (15%). Bring in your books to discuss as you finish them (don't save them until the end of term!), and make sure you have your next book ready to go in class. 

Pace yourself with these book due dates: First book = April 5, Second book = May 3, Third book (and final date for any books) = June 3

NEW FOR TERM 3: 

  • Books may include one non-fiction book
  • You may read a book that has been made into a movie (see me about BookTalk requirement if you choose this one)
  • Books may include 800 pages of graphic novel (see me for details)
  • You may count To Kill A Mockingbird as one of your books
