FINAL BOOK PROJECT IS DUE Friday, May 18th by the end of the day (3:00 p.m.) I will not accept any late work. Students have been asked to complete an "Elements of Plot" poster for the book they are reading. Students have also been provided with a graphic organizer to help them plan their poster as they read. I have offered help to establish a reading plan that would enable them to be successful. We will have some class time to read but it will be important that students are reading in AE/FELA and at home. Please email me if you have any questions or concerns. firstname.lastname@example.org
