2. Identify the genre of the book you read.
3. Give a short biography of the author 1-2 paragraphs. Include information that explains why the author chose to write in the specific genre to which the book belongs i.e., the author was a trial lawyer before beginning to write courtroom dramas. MAKE SURE NOT TO CUT AND PASTE THIS INFORMATION.
II Information about the Story
(Note: This should be about 1.5 pages.)
1. The student will write a 2-3 sentence synopsis of the plot if fiction or of the material covered if non-fiction.
2. The student will describe, with examples taken from the book, why the book belongs to the specific genre. There should be at least two examples quoted from the book. Please make sure to list the page numbers in parenthesis when you present the quotations.
3. List the main characters in the book those who are most important to the story. Give a brief explanation of the part that each character plays in the story. (Note: in fiction, there is usually one primary character, several important primary supporting characters, and a few important but not primary supporting characters. You should list all of these.
Sample: Sherlock Holmes primary figure in the story. Everything revolves around him. He is a self-taught detective living in Victorian England who has a unique approach to solving crimes.
4. Describe the location/setting of the story. Explain why the setting is important to the story and how the location plays a significant part in creating the story almost like another character. (You may have to do some research in order to answer this question. Your research should be noted in the bibliography. You should also cite your research in your answer if you rely heavily on your research to answer this question.)
Sample: Magnum PI is set in Hawaii in the 1970s. This exotic locale and the time in which the stories are set just after the Vietnam War made it possible to investigate themes related to that conflict. Hawaiis romantic allure also serves as a compelling setting for the ex-military characters who are all struggling with adjusting to civilian life. They live in paradise, but they still struggle with making a living and finding romance.
