Over Vacation…Due on January 3, 2017

Periods 1A, 2A, 1B, 2B & 3B:

  1. Take 15 minutes per day to read your book. When you return to school on Tuesday, January 3, you should have HALF of your book read and complete the “Reading Log.”

LATE: Conduct background research on the setting of your novel and take notes on the “Historical Setting Summary.” For example, if your book is Sharpshooter by Chris Lynch, your book is set in the 1960s/Vietnam War. Conduct research on the 1960s and Vietnam. This research should help you to write a one-page summary on the historical setting of your novel. This is NOT a summary of your book. This template is a ROUGH DRARFT that will help you to write your summative assessment when you return from vacation.
