This year, students will undertake a reading project. They will read a minimum of six texts that all express an element of gothic fiction. The texts will be self-selected and must not have been studied in great depth in class. After reading each text, students will record their response to the text and examine how the creator of the text used an element of gothic fiction. Their responses will be presented on their blogs.
