Students must read 25 books by the end of the year. They must read a MINIMUM of 2 books each of the first three quarters.
All information must be recorded on the log. This includes: title, author, number of pages, and date completed. Log must be filled in completely to get full credit.
A summary must be completed for each book read. Forms are available in class.
Mrs. Pacharis will sign the log after checking the summary. Parents do not need to do anything!
Logs are turned in at the end of the first three quarters for a homework grade. Logs are collected at the end of the year and counted as the final test grade worth 100 points. Points are based on number of books read. Extra credit will be given to those students who exceed 15 books.
How to Cover 25 Books!
Books read independently should be added to the log.
Novels read in class may be added to the log.
Books used for class projects count.
Also, any "surprise" books used in class may be added IF the student was responsible enough to bring their log to class that day!
