Sorry for the confusion with the book reviews.
Here is the revised assignment:
You should have a book talk based on your “element” of the work of fiction and also address the theme, “Speaking Truth to Power” in this talk.
Based on this discussion, you should complete a 500-750 review of the element of the book you examined.
If you feel secure and happy with your grade (based on the National Exam, etc.) you need not overdue this assignment, but if you want to bump up your grade, I would give it some time.
It’s due on the Tuesday we return, 10 January.
Good luck and Happy New Year!
