  Assignments for Novel:

 While you are reading the novel, you will have an envelope with a topic.  You are responsible to find passages that support the topic.  For each section, you are required to find a total of 20 passages for the book.  I will check your envelope contents when the readings are due.  Keep up with the readings and your envelope contents.

Your first non-fiction writing is due Tuesday, Oct. 14 and then every Tuesday through the end of the term. I will give you an article each Tuesday and your response will be due the following Tuesday.
