This project is a close reading guide for students reading a multicultural novel. It helps students to reflect on the text and author's craft. Students will also be guided into drawing an analysis of culture and traditions - both others and their own. This project is designed to be used for an independent multicultural novel selection, but it can also be used for a class read multicultural novel. It would make a perfect accompaniment to a multicultural literature circle discussion. Scoring rubric is included.
