World Literature Independent Reading Project
Quarter 4 2009-2010
Note: In order for your book to qualify it must be by an author from a country other than the United States or the United Kingdom OR the primary setting must be outside of the United States or the United Kingdom.

1. If you don’t already, obtain a physical copy of the book and bring it to each class.
2. Become an expert on your book by the end of the fourth quarter. The project ends on May 28th, so you have about seven weeks to complete the book. Keep in mind that you will be reading this book in addition to assigned readings for class, so when the homework load is light read your book. This is also the book you should use for KIS Reads.
3. Read actively by taking notes in the book (use Post-its if it’s on loan), and make sure you understand the main conflicts, how the characters develop, and any major themes.
4. Your book will be the basis of a writing project at the conclusion of the fourth quarter, so keep track of the book.
