Book Review Tips and Tools:
Most importantly, make use of the links on the left toolbar. There are two pre-approved book lists to help you choose your book. ENG 11 students MUST choose a book written by an American author. ENG 10 students can choose from either list.
The link to the MLA Format Template is on the main page for your class. Also, the link to my Guide to Writing page on the left toolbar will have several links to a variety of online resources for writing. These are ALL VERY useful.
The Criteria and Content page outlines the format for a book review AND the guidelines for this project. The K-Prep Rubric page will show the scoring categories and point values.
