For this 9 Weeks, we are making a few slight changes to the requirements for independent reading.

Regular English 10 Classes

*6 Books* (Don't forget to look at page count information!)


1 of your books will be a set of 10 articles and/or videos on your selected research topic.

During the month of February- Read something by an African American author and earn an "extra book!" (Ex. 1 book would = 2, 2 books would = 3, and 3 books would = 4!)

You must journal 3 books! (A good journal should have around 15-20 (or more) GOOD entries. You should address every LOT number!)

After turning in your journal, you may use a Book Log to record the rest of your books.

Articles do not have to be journaled or logged. You will be doing an annotated bibliography for these.


Pre AP English 10 Classes

The above assignments are yours as well, but I am including one more item. You must complete a Lit Circle assignment for 1 of the books on the sign-up sheet in my room. This will count toward your 6 books as well. Journal or log this book as you read independently. Entries will help your group with discussions.
