This is a fun way to have students report on the books they read independently. Traditional book reports are tedious to do and even more tedious to grade!! This is an interactive way to get kids excited about doing a report, allows you to grade as they are presenting their project, and even aligns with the Speaking and Listening parts of the Common Core State Standards!
The handout is in Word Doc form so you can change whatever you need in order to make it fit your classroom. The genre is set to fiction, but if you want them to read a specific genre, feel free to adjust as needed.
Simply make copies or have students take notes from the one form as you project it. Students will be responsible for checking out a book from the library and reading the book on their own time. The whole project is done at home, so it doesn't take away from classroom instruction, yet still provides students with that independent reading experience we all want them to have.
Included is the handout to give to students as well as a grading rubric for the teacher!
