This is a book review that really shows that the student has read the book. The student creates a newspaper based on things like the conflict, resolution, advertisements and contains an interview.
I use this when students complete their first book club novel. Students are allowed to make this as creative as they want. Some students have given me booklets and others put everything into the 6 sections like I have it on the paper. As long as they include everything in the rubric, it is detailed and makes sense with the novel, it is fine with me!
Examples of descriptions from Hatchet are included. If you want students to create this on the computer that's an option! I have my students draw and write everything down. For GT students, they usually get ahead, so they can transfer those to the computer.
