Looking for a simple way to change up your book reports? Try having your students create the movie for the book. Students will still work with writing a summary and determining what is impotant from the text. They will also explain the setting and characters of the book. In the end you will have a fun book project for students to share and a wall full of book-related movie posters to show off what students thought of the story. There is even an extra credit assignment involving making the soundtrack for the book. This project works great as a small group project as well for literature circles.
