Exploring Cultures Independent Reading Project (ELA10) - Huppert/Watson: Home


  • Find a novel about a character that is different from you.
  • More specifically, the novel should explore an aspect of culture different from your own in terms of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or socioeconomic status.  You may also choose a book about someone who is differently-abled than you.
  • You are encouraged to find a novel that explores a culture you know little about, do not understand, or believe yourself to be biased against--though that is not necessary.
  • The important thing is to explore a difference.

Getting a Book

Below are video tutorials for how to get a book from BVSW as well as JoCo Library.  Of course, you can purchase your book if you so choose, but don't forget the library is an option too!

**If you don't have a library card from Johnson County Public Library, find out how to get an eCard here.  This will allow you to access their eBook collection.  If you want a physical copy of the book from JoCo Library, you will need to stop in to a physical branch in order to set up a library account.
