  • Product Description
  • StandardsNEW

Don’t judge a book by it’s cover, sometimes we as readers get hung up on what a book looks like, and simply leave it on the shelf. Maybe the artist did not do a good job, or maybe the font simply is not your liking, but what if a student is missing out on a great book simply because it was “attractive enough”. Students will now go on a “blind date” with a book. Using the optional book list provided, pick a book based solely on its summary and begin “dating”. 

What's Included:

Project requirements

Optional Book List with summaries (over 70 titles)

Book Review Template

Guided reading handout

Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects to answer a question (including a self-generated question) or solve a problem; narrow or broaden the inquiry when appropriate; synthesize multiple sources on the subject, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation.
Use technology, including the Internet, to produce, publish, and update individual or shared writing products, taking advantage of technology’s capacity to link to other information and to display information flexibly and dynamically.
Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach, focusing on addressing what is most significant for a specific purpose and audience.
Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
Provide a conclusion that follows from and reflects on what is experienced, observed, or resolved over the course of the narrative.
