Alex's English Assignment: Create Illustrations For A Novel



Music:  Various Classical Pieces




Alex's English assignment was to create illustrations for a novel using
Microsoft Paint.

Alex had to pick out important events in the novel...
the most descriptive passages...
illustrate them...
and then describe the connection between the illustrations...
and the passages.















This is a good exercise, as it necessitates the full understanding 
of the material in order to pick out the passages in the novel which
provide the points upon which the story turns.

The created illustrations demonstrate the perspective of the child...
what he is actually visualizing as he reads...
while forcing the constant rehearsal of the meaning of the passages...
in the child's mind, as he creates the illustration.

This was just one of two English assignments Alex completed this week
in order for him to clear the board of all near term assignments which
had to be turned in before his Science Project.

As tomorrow is Sunday...
Alex will continue with his experiments
without having to worry about other assignments...
and with uninterrupted effort.
