Independent Novel Project
English 10—Fall 2008
Parent notes and doctor’s office excuses will not be grounds for a penalty-free extension because I have given you two months to complete the assignment, and I am already giving you a five-day extension. All portions of the assignment must be submitted to avoid the fifty percent penalty.
In addition to turning in a print copy of the assignment, an electronic copy must also be submitted to turnitin.com by the above deadline. If you are having trouble with the site, you should email your assignment to me as a Microsoft Word attachment by Thursday, December 18. If you send the document to me in another format, I will not be able to open it, and you will be subject to the fifty percent late penalty. Do not send the work in the body of the email either. If I do not have the electronic file, I cannot upload the paper to turnitin.com. It is your responsibility to avoid these problems. You have access to all the resources you need at school. Do not wait until the last minute to submit. Technology excuses will not be grounds for a penalty-free extension.
If I discover that you have plagiarized any part of this assignment, you will receive a zero for the entire assignment. This assignment does not require any research and should be completed without using other sources.
To receive full credit for each section, you must fully answer the question using specific details from the novel. Being too general, simply restating the question, or answering the question with just the definition of the term at hand will keep you from getting full credit. You will also lose credit if your responses are not written in complete sentences.
The assignment should be typed using the formatting guidelines given to you at the beginning of the year: one-inch margins, double spacing, header, identification information on the left, etc. An example can be found on our course web site if you have lost the print copy I gave you earlier. Because this assignment is not an essay, the following modifications have been made:

1. In the place of the title, type the following: Independent Novel Project.

2. When you complete each section of the assignment, use an underlined section heading. The headings should match the sections on the assignment sheet. Begin writing your response for each section underneath the heading.
Example:
Setting
You would begin writing about the setting here; however, your paper will be double spaced, so you would have a space between the heading and your response.
The written component of the independent novel project is 125 points: 100 for the typed assignment and 25 for the chapter summaries and notes. The chapter summaries must be written in complete sentences and must be detailed and complete to get full credit.
Attach your chapter summaries and notes to your typed work.
Your typed assignment should include the following information:
