These books selected are meant to complement and accompany the two novels already selected for Mr. Rhodus’s Junior English Class. In addition to reading the books, a combination of two activities must be completed to demonstrate comprehension of the text and application to prior learning.

  • 750-1500 words
  • Combination of Book Summary and Book Review
  • Reflect on how the well the book portrays the historical time period
  • Include comments from at least three other Book Reviews (Professional or Amateur)
  • Reading Projects: Select one from the list below

    As of now, all US history projects will be due Monday, 10/25. We will also have the first Europe Quiz on that same day. Thursday will be a half day for project work. Friday will be an activities day and a link will be posted here for all those who miss class.

    Clarification on the projects. Whatever format you choose, it should be concise and concentrate on the time period we are currently studying.  In addition, all projects should have some kind of bibliography of sources to accompany the final product.
