Huck Finn - See File Below for Assignment. You must complete the assignment and read the entire novel by November 1.
Guidelines for Frankenstein Presentations: Content: 1. Have an introduction and conclusion that engages the audience and supports your theme 2. Make specific references to the text - ask the audience to find the page or quote, read it, discuss the significance 3. Understand the larger meaning of your theme in the novel and present that Speaking: 1. No keynote/powerpoint/google slides presentations 2. You may have a handout - but do not read from it other than quotes from the novel 3. Use AP senior vocabulary and speaking skills, for instance no "likes" or middle school words 4. I expect these to last somewhere between 10 and 15 minutes - no more, no less 5. You will be seated in a panel-style presentation; hence the presentation should be free-flowing between the members of the group (not scripted).
