Exploring Cultures Independent Reading Project (10th grade): Home

Guidelines

  • 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, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or socioeconomic status.
  • 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.
