Outside Reading Project
This project is divided into three sections. You will be responsible for turning each part in on
time. To receive the first section, you must show your teacher the book you have chosen and the
signed permission slip. When you have completed the first section it will be graded and returned to
you. You then can request the second section. The same process will apply to the third section.
. Keep in mind that you must choose a novel, not a novelette or short story. You must
also check the novel in with your teacher. Not only does this assure the teacher you’re off to a good
start, but it also serves as a protection for you. Not all books will meet the criteria for this
assignment. It would be a shame for you to finish a third of the book and be unable to complete the
Important: Additionally, please check the book in with your parents. It is important that they
know what you are reading and that they approve of your choice of novel. Particularly in the case of
Pulitzer novels, some may include material that your parents may find objectionable. Keep in mind
the Pulitzer is awarded to adult novels and thus reflects themes, language and scenes that are aimed
at adults. The teacher will need to see this sheet signed by your parent to check in your book.
