Reminder of Nonfiction Book-of-the-Month Project

Nonfiction for the February (spilling into March) Book-of-the-Month
(earlier published February 4 -- republished February 16)

Have your book to bring to class before or by February 19.  You may begin reading it before then. 
You will create at least one type of external text feature for your book.

Due March 8.  
All late and revised work must be turned in no later than March 12.

Rubrics for Projects: External Text Features for your Book-of-the-Month
You need only do one. 

See this article in the School Library Journal about some award winning nonfiction books.

Your nonfiction book will be an informational book about a single subject ( not a how-to or self-help book)  and not a collection such as Guinness Book of World Records or Ripley's Believe It Or Not).

Find a topic you really would be interested in learning more about, and look for a book about that topic.
