  1. What do i do if there is no worst character

  2. If you liked all the characters, you can say so…. : ) must be a good book!

  3. lets say a book has 20 chapters. would it be okay to write 10 paragraphs

  4. Is the Percy Jackson Books a good book for the critic’s corner assignment?

  5. Teacher Amira, can we have the project due Wednesday So everyone can have time to do all of the requirements? Do we have to do a presentation in front of the class for the assignment?

    • We’ll keep the critique due on Tuesday insha’Allah as it wouldn’t be fair to change the due date after letting everyone know when to have it ready by.

      There isn’t a presentation expected.
