How Does Change Influence and/or Affect the Characters in the Stories We Read?
As an extension of our Language Arts Literacy Lessons, Independent Novel Studies will be required this year. There are a number of components to the study, which you will be required to complete. There are basically FOUR categories that the project is composed of:
PART A – 4 JOURNAL ENTRIES
PART B – FORMAL BOOK TALK PRESENTATION
PART C – A CREATIVE ASSIGNMENT OF YOUR CHOICE
All four components are essential to your literacy development, oral communication, representing information and public speaking skills. The novel you choose is for you to decide. However, your teacher must approve the novel to ensure it is at your appropriate reading level. Possible Genres of Literature for you to choose from are: Fictional Literature of Fantasy/Adventure, Traditional Literature (Folktales/Fairytales), Realistic Fiction, Historical Fiction, Science Fiction, Non-Fiction Informational, Non-fiction Biography, Non-fiction Autobiography. Please be very careful when choosing your novel. You will have 5 DAYS to solidify your selection. Once this time is up you MUST have a novel chosen and CANNOT change.
