This product helps meet opinion writing standards! I love it because it is easy to hand out the directions and then let the kids get to work. It can be done in class or at home.
Part 1 of the book report requires students to write an opinion letter to Barnes and Noble requesting that they make a particular book "Book of the Week." In part 1, students are writing from the point of view of a customer.
In part 2 of the report, students work from the point of view of a Barnes and Noble Manager:
A letter you got asking you to make a particular book your “Book of the Week” has persuaded you. Now that you have picked out your “Book of the Week”, your job is to create an advertisement (poster) that will hang by the front door of every Barnes and Noble store next week. The poster should persuade shoppers to buy the “Book of the Week” as well as other books by the author.
