Gary Paulsen Extra Credit Opporunity
for Mrs. Westerlund’s language arts class

For the past few weeks, we have been reading and discussing stories/novels that fall into the Action/Adventure genre.

To earn extra credit in language arts, you may select and read one of the following Gary Paulsen action/adventure stories that you have NOT already read or had read to you.


  • Hatchet
  • Brian's Return
  • Brian's Winter
  • The River
  • Brian's Hunt
  • Mr. Tuckett
  • Tuckett’s Ride
  • The Island


Once you are done reading the entire novel, you will create a Wikitastic Book Review. To earn this extra credit, you will upload your Wikitastic Book Report to the the Gary Paulsen Wiki Page (use the tag: Gary) on our class/Westerlund Wiki by January, 6.

3. Use the Wikitastic Book Report Template
