The projects above may be completed for books read independently in Mr. Ottís Language Arts classes.

One Project is due each semester
and will be counted as a test grade
.

The title and author of the book must appear somewhere on the project.  Likewise, a written connection between the book and the project should appear somewhere on the project.  Written projects should be typed and/or presented on poster board.  Students should not present any project that does not meet the criteria in the #3 column of the evaluation rubric on the reverse of this page.  Since all projects must be approved prior to their presentation, they should be brought to school for review at least 3 days prior to the studentís scheduled presentation.  This will give the student the opportunity to get constructive feedback in order to make improvements before a grade is assigned.   All books read for projects should be approved by Mr. Ott, and appropriate reading log must be completed as book is in progress. Project grade will account for 1 Summative Assessment Grade and will consist of two parts: 50% - physical project, 50% - classroom oral presentation.  Note: No more than 2 projects will be scheduled per day.  It is the studentís responsibility to pace the completion of his/her projects.  Students will sign up for presentation times each semester.  Presentation dates will be posted on the Class Website at least 6 weeks in advance of the first scheduled project. Failure to complete project on the chosen date will result in a loss of 5 points per calendar day that the project is not suitable for presentation. In addition to the acceptable product, on the date of their presentation, students will turn in a signed and completed reading log along with a typed copy of their oral presentation.  Failure to possess any of these three elements on time will result in a late presentation of their work and will result in a loss of credit as defined above.
