We will be reading a novel entitled The Cay by Theodore Taylor. All reading will be completed in class, unless a student is absent. Students may borrow books as needed. There will be a series of tests and quizzes as we progress through the book. Vocabulary (matching only) is included in some of the quizzes. All students will receive a novel packet and study guides for the vocabulary. The first quiz will occur when we finish chapter three. It will include vocabulary, notes taken in class, and information from the first three chapters of the book. The second quiz, which follows the same format, will be after chapter ten; the third one after chapter nineteen. There is a unit test on the entire novel and an in-class project.
