Are you looking for an alternative book report that's not only educational, but is fun, engaging, and challenging for your students? Well, your search has ended!
Included in the Zip File is a Power Point guide, Bloom's Ball template, and a scoring rubric.
This Power Point presentation has everything you'll need to guide your class as they complete their own individualized Bloom's Ball Book Report. It also includes plenty of examples so that they will have an idea as to what is expected of them. I have a Bloom's Ball that I made several years ago that I pass around the classroom for all to see as well. The activity will work with any novel and is based upon Bloom's Taxonomy of the Levels of Knowledge.
After reading their assigned novel, I have my students complete their Bloom's Ball Book Report either as a weekly homework assignment or as a 3-4 day in-class assignment. As the culminating activity, I have my students share their Bloom's Balls in small groups as a way to discuss the novel.
