This is an awesome alternative to the standard book report and students really enjoy this form of assessment.
It is adaptable and easy to assess. I have included a 4 point rubric for both the paper bag book report itself and the oral presentation (you may or may not want to do this as a part of the assessment).
The focus of this report is on the plot, characters, theme and setting. Conventions and comprehension are addressed, as are speaking and listening outcomes. The rubrics are multi-purpose in that they could be used with other book reports/projects- they're not just a one time deal.
