Outside reading is required for this class. A chapter will be covered in each class period. Comprehension questions will also be completed. There are several quizzes and a final test to be completed at home. There will be optional enrichment activities to deepen understanding of the story, most of which will involve writing. Depending on how swiftly a student works, the outside work should be completed by most students in 1-2 hours for each class meeting. There will be a final project and writing assignments.
