This Common Core aligned Book Report Project
enables students to creatively respond to their reading. Over the course of the book project, students will create a unique file folder covered in plot details, character analysis, setting description, a personal reflection, plus a book cover design and a listing of other books by the same author. The File Folder Reading Project
is designed for students to complete on ANY BOOK. The highly detailed handouts and worksheets in this resource are designed so that students can either work on the project in class or completely independently outside of the classroom. Students are required to complete a first draft of all project elements so that the final project reflects their best work. The end result is a vivid, comprehensive, and creative book report!
This project is easily adaptable for use as a response to a class-wide novel study, independent reading project, or summer reading project.
Also, the final file folders are a great addition to your classroom library. Future readers can easily reference the file folders to get a review of a book before reading the book on their own.
Step-by-step guides and directions are included for students. Worksheets and handouts for completing the hands-on book report project are part of this resource.
