To be clear, I'll post assignments in Class Notebook as well as Teams. Use what works for you; I'm not picky!

Flip Grid Book Project

This project was officially due more than a week prior to our closings, but if anyone still needs to complete the assignment, he/she is more than welcome. You may email your script to me. If you do not have the ability to record your book talk using FlipGrid (requires a microphone and camera), I understand! I do, however, want to read over your script.


Your script should include the following:
1. title of the book
2. author of the book
3. a brief description of the main character and what his/her problem is
4. a rating (How many stars out of five?)
5. a reason for that rating
