INSTEAD OF DOING THE ASSIGNMENTS AS POSTED UNDER THE
HOMEWORK OUTLINE EACH NIGHT FOR EACH CHAPTER, YOU
WILL BE WORKING ON SOME OF THE ASSIGNMENTS LISTED BELOW.

PICK 3 OF THE FOLLOWING 5 ASSIGNMENTS TO COMPLETE BY THE
END OF THE UNIT. ONE OF THE THREE MUST BE A NEWSPAPER.
YOU CAN DO 4 OF THE 5 IF YOU WANT SOME EXTRA CREDIT BUT
YOU MUST LABEL THE ONE YOU WANT TO QUALIFY FOR EXTRA
CREDIT.


1.        MAKE A PICTORIAL THEME SLIDE SHOW WITH QUOTES
FROM THE BOOK, QUOTES FROM OUTSIDE SOURCES RELATING TO A
THEME, PICTURES, INFORMATION AND INSIGHT SUBSTANTIATING
MEANINGS OF THEMES, AND IT SHOULD BE A MINIMUM OF 20
SLIDES.

2.        DESIGN AN 8 PAGE NEWSPAPER THAT CHRONICLES THE
LIFESTYLE OF THE 20'S, COVERS MAJOR EVENTS FROM THE STORY,
AND FEATURES AT LEAST TWO CHARACTERS. IT SHOULD ALSO
CONVEY AN INFORMATIVE PROFILE ON THE AUTHOR.

3.        AN OPEN MIND OR COAT OF ARMS ON A THEME, IDEA, OR
CHARACTER FROM THE NOVEL.

4.        KEEP A DIARY FOR A MAJOR CHARACTER FROM THE

THESE FIVE WILL RESULT IN EXTRA CREDIT. YOU MAY ALSO
