This is a great genre to assign for a book report. Have each student choose a novel that has won either a Newbery Honor or Medal. Then discuss what makes a novel worthy of such a medal or honor. After learning about the requirements that a novel must meet in order to achieve this award, students will write a report explaining how the novel that they read met each of the requirements. Attached is a specific assignment to hand out to students with guidelines for how to write the report.
