Sophomore English Extra Credit Third Nine Weeks
Personally select any Young Adult or Fiction Novel and compare it to a similar novel you have read in the past. The readings should be at least 200 words, exceptions will be made on an individual basis. After reading the novel write a 1000 word literature review of the novel. Emphasis should be placed on why you read the novel, enjoyment, who you would recommend it to, and what makes the novel unique compared to other readings. The paper should be submitted to Mr. Wilson by the end of the school day on the last Friday of February. This year that would be February 25. Include MLA Endnotes for any readings or media referenced in the review.
