Welcome to 8th ELA at Georgetown Middle School. 


When I finish reading my book (by Jan 3rd) I will have to complete one of the following book report projects: DUE Friday January 5th

-Create a newspaper for your book. Summarize the plot in one article, cover the weather in another, do a feature story on one of the more interesting characters in another. Include an editorial and a collection of ads that would be pertinent to the story. Minimum word count for the newspaper is 300.

Do a book talk. Talk to the class about your book by saying a little about the author, explain who the characters are and explain enough about the beginning of the story so that everyone will understand what they are about to read. Finally, read an exciting, interesting, or amusing passage from your book. Stop reading at a moment that leaves the audience hanging and add "If you want to know more you’ll have to read the book." If the book talk is well done almost all the students want to read the book. You must write your book talk on paper (300 words) before presenting.

Write a different ending for your story. Must be 300 words

Do some research on a major issue or topic brought up in your book. Poverty, human rights, discrimination..etc. Right a 300-word paper on what you discover.

-Paint a climactic scene from your book. Write a 300-word explanation of the conflict in the story, how it reaches a climax, and the resolution.
