I use this activity with my students as they work to fulfill their reading requirement for graduation. The Book Summary and Analysis is the high school version of the Book Report. Students are required to summarize the text in addition to analyzing the central theme. This activity aligns with the English Language Arts Common Core standards, requiring students to not only analyze the central theme and summarize the plot elements, but to go back to the text and support their position with textual evidence as well. The assignment sheet uses graphic organizers such as the Freytag Pyramid to help students visualize the plot of the text as they write their summary. My students have had great success writing well-constructed book summaries and analyses using this product.
