Independent Novel Study:

Due – Friday February 20, 2015

This reading project is to be done at home and during independent work time at school. After reading a novel of your choice, complete the following assignments:

1. Title Page
• Create a new title page for your novel.  It should include the title and the author’s name.  Be creative!
 
2. Plot Summary
• In your own words, explain what happens in the book.  Include only the main events and write about them in the order in which they occur in the book.  This should be written in a well-developed paragraph of about 8 – 12 sentences in length.  This is a summary and should not be too detailed!
 
3. Character Assignments (To be done on separate pages):
• Draw a detailed portrait of the main character as described in the book or as you see that character in your mind’s eye (1/2 page).  Beneath the portrait, write a paragraph which explains the character’s role in the story, the problem the character faced, and how you think the character learned from, or was changed by, the events in the book.  (1/2 page)
• Complete a Character Comparison Diagram (This will be given to you).  Compare the appearances, personalities, and roles of three characters in the novel.  Be thorough and informative, give some specifics.
 
4. Story Map
• Draw a map of the story that would represent your story well and follows through the main events of the book.  There should be a minimum of 10 and no more than 12 events.  Each event should be accompanied by a short sentence explaining the event. The map should include the title, the author’s name, and markings which indicate the beginning and the end of the story.  No white space, please and be creative!
 
5. Diary Entries
• Write at least 5 diary entries as if they had been written by the main character in the book.  These diary entries should reflect what the character is thinking and feeling about the main events or problems in the story.  Each entry should be a good, solid paragraph in length.  Decorations, dates and add-ons are welcome!
 
6. Personal Book Rating
• In a good paragraph, write your personal rating of the novel and how you think the author could have improved it.  Remember to give examples from the book to support your answer. You may want to consider the following questions when explaining your rating and don’t just answer them in this order. Use the questions as a guide to your paragraph.

✓ Did the story capture your interest immediately?
✓ Did the characters grow or change in the story?
✓ Was the setting described well?
✓ Did the author use interesting vocabulary?
✓ Were the characters believable?
✓ Did the action move along at good pace?
✓ Was the story confusing in parts?
✓ Did the story make you think about the problem?
