Period 4: English 20
Independent Novel Projects
Let’s talk about independent novel projects. Yes you have to read a novel on your own.
Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be enough time to do Go Set a Watchmen and we don’t have books or audio capabilities for everyone. However, someone is welcome to borrow my copy. I want to give you choice on this but need to make sure you read your novel. I think it would make sense to try and find a book that appeals to your passion projects! Am I right?

ON MONDAY, I would like to know your book and project.

Time to get into ANOTHER short stories:
Learning Targets:
I will be able to find deeper meaning in a short story.
I will be able to find symbolism within a story.
