AFTER YOUR ENDPOINT, WRITE A BOOK REVIEW!
We’ll do this next week. We are going to create a new Edmodo group.
Your review should be one short paragraph. Describe the plot (no spoilers!), explain specifically what you liked or didn’t like about the book, and say whether you would recommend it to others. You can also give the book zero to five stars. Write in complete sentences, use proper punctuation and grammar, and be thoughtful!
