Independent Reading Project Quarter 2:

Literary Scrapbook

After you have finished your independent reading book, create a scrapbook that
represents a main character. You can also include yourself in the scrapbook as well.
Consider the personality, attitudes, beliefs, motivations and background of the character
you pick. Be creative!!! (and follow the “rules”)

The Rules:
1. The scrapbook must be at least 10 pages long
2. The scrapbook must demonstrate that the student has read the entire book
3. The scrapbook must include mostly writing
4. Create eggnog, not skim milk!
5. The book needs to be created with the idea that a scrapbook is usually a
hodgepodge, a mishmash, a mixture of multiple things. Therefore, one
type of material should not dominate the scrapbook

represents the novel/character
