Web Design for Novel Study

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

JMV

Instructions for Students:

 

After reading the novel you will use www.weebly.com to create a website as opposed to writing a traditional “book report.”

 

Your webpage should include the following pages/features:

  1. Home page: this should include a picture of the novel cover and BRIEF description of the book.
  1. Characters: include pictures and character descriptions of each major character.  (It’s up to you to include minor characters or not). You must include at least 3 characters
  1. Literary Elements: find specific examples four of the following: point of view, rising action, figurative language, characterization, metaphor/simile, etc.  Ask me for others if you need to or consult your literary terms from the beginning of the semester.
  1. Ties to self: How do you relate to this novel?  This will be more like a blog entry where you write a narrative discussing your view of the novel and how you felt reading it, etc.
  1. Citation: Please site all sources (including pictures, video or audio if used) and provide an MLA citation for the novel itself.

When you finish, email your web address to me at jennenen@gmail.com
