    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!!
