This is a project that my middle school students complete primarily independently. I try to use their choice books to reinforce instruction on literary terms, vocabulary, composition, and research. This particular project is tailored for nonfiction selections, and I’ve aligned it with the new common core standards. I typically give four to six weeks to read the novel and complete the packet activities. Please review the rules I’ve created on page 2 and adapt them as you see fit. Enjoy!
