Every teacher wants to inspire students to want to read novels, but that can be much more of a challenge than we expect. Get rid of the old school book reports where students simply read a novel and write a paper on it, and assign them a Book in a Prezi project! A Book in a Prezi project is where students read a fictional novel of their choice and create a Prezi presentation to highlight the critical components of fictional literature. Students will have to identify and analyze setting, theme, plot, climax, characters, and genre. They will create their Prezi using their own creative minds so that their project represents themselves and their respective novel. Students will then present their Prezis in front of their classmates to summarize their novel.
This resource has a set of student directions that are set up in a step-by-step format. It also includes a detailed rubric for grading the Prezi as well as for grading their presentation.
