Students will form groups by novel choice. Groups will complete a commitment sheet and meet often to discuss aspects of the work. A Major Works Data Sheet will be due on date below and you will also be required to perform a writing task on the novel on that date.
Please note: you are actually to read the selection you choose. Do not use Cliff’s Notes or Spark Notes summaries. I would much rather have your own thoughts and ideas. I will know from your essay and your Major Works Data Sheet if you copy from these sources!!
