*If you have an idea for something that is not listed, let me know and we will discuss. You may use something you have created as one of the five required items. If you wrote a poem or song that connects to a chapter, you may include it, but all your other materials need to be from outside sources.


  1. You can provide the materials in a way that makes the most sense for me to view them easily.
    1. If you submit the materials through mylearning and you are including an audio or video file, please make sure they work before you submit. I should be able to see/hear whatever you are submitting.
    2. You could include each piece as an individual attachment under the assignment.
  2. You may pick any 5 chapters and any 5 types of sources you like.
  3. You cannot duplicate chapters or types of sources. If you pick a comic for one chapter, you cannot use a comic for any other chapter.
  4. For each source you will provide a two paragraph explanation of how the source connected to the chapter specifically. You will also indicate what personal connection the source has for you.
  5. You are required to use proper in text MLA formatting to make the connection clear between your source and the chapter. This means using direct quotes, properly.
  6. The project is due by midnight. No late projects will be accepted.






Example Media Item and Explanation

“Wildflowers” by Tom Petty

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong in a boat out at sea
Sail away, kill off the hours
You belong somewhere you feel free

Run away, find you a lover
Go away somewhere all bright and new
I have seen no other
Who compares with you

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong in a boat out at sea
You belong with your love on your arm
You belong somewhere you feel free

Run away, go find a lover
Run away, let your heart be your guide
You deserve the deepest of cover
You belong in that home by and by

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong somewhere close to me
Far away from your trouble and worry
You belong somewhere you feel free
You belong somewhere you feel free
