Materials Needed

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
Notebook paper
Pens
Computer for final copy

Procedure

First, the students need to read And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie, but as they read the book, they need to take notes, so they will have them handy when they are ready to write their plot summary. After that, they are ready to write their summary of the book. A plot summary should give the main ideas of what happened in the book, but they should reveal the ending because that would spoil it for other people who might want to read the book.

When they have completed their summaries, they can edit their papers. They need to check for spelling, grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and paragraph structure. It's also important to use active tenses instead of passive tenses. Once they have completed their editing and are satisfied with their work, they can type their final project on the computer. I would also advise them to use Microsoft Word and check for spelling and grammar. After they have completed their summaries, they can submit them to you for grading.

Grading

You can grade their papers on English Grammar, spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, and paragraph structure. Besides the mechanics, you can grade them on accuracy of the information they obtained from the book.
