Students should follow the instructions and rubric for the assignments. A draft of your book Review will be required, and counts for 5% of the final project grade, see syllabus for due date. Please prepare five slides related to your book review that you may use to present to the class about your topic area. The slides will also count for 5% of your final project grade. Do NOT try to find someone else’s review of one of the books and copy or paraphrase it yourself. If you plagiarize you will receive a zero for the entire assignment. You must read the book yourself in order to do well on the assignment. I will run your assignment through a plagiarism checker after you turn it in. Additionally, I have enabled the Turnit In Feature in ICollege, so you should be able to see your plagiarism scores as well.
