WHILE YOU READ:1. Complete a dialectical journal for each chapter, creating three entries per chapter (or scene if it's a play).2. Find two new vocabulary words for each chapter (or scene). In your book journal, write the word, the page on which it is found, a sentence from the book with the word, and the word's definition .

AFTER YOU READ:1. Complete a DETAILED story response Glog for the book. This should be 1-3 paragraphs summarizing the novel, as well as 2-3 paragraphs sharing your response to the book. This Glog must also include images and/or video to complement the presentation.2. Write a 5-8 paragraph book review.3. Complete an annotated bibliography for the book. For this, you will need to consult DISCUS. Search for information about the author or about any of the themes in the book by typing the author's name and/or the name of the book. Find four articles about the book. Read through the articles and jot down summary notes. Also be sure to write about the author's main points (an informational text analysis, such as those we've done in class, would help you). Then, write the citation information in MLA format. Once you have done that, write 100-150 words (roughly 8-10 sentences) about your source. This is more EVALUATION than summary; evaluate the author's information rather than merely summarizing what he/she has to say.
