INCORPORATE THESE INTO A LARGER ELA PROJECT! Looking to replace traditional book reports with a comprehensive Common Core language arts project that includes these response project ideas? I invite you to check out these resources: BIG ELA Book Report Project LITE Version and the BIG ELA Book Report Project FULL Version!

The BIG ELA Book Report Project turns a traditional book report into a truly comprehensive language arts activity using a combination of reading, writing, speaking, and listening tasks. Each part of this project is aligned with an ELA Common Core standard.

--Reading: Students read a book of their choice from a specified genre. Then, they demonstrate comprehension and higher-level thinking by completing two response projects from the Not Your Grandma's Book Report list.

--Writing: Students also demonstrate comprehension by completing a genre-specific handout that requires knowledge of the setting, characters, plot, problem, and solution. Students are also asked to relate the book to themselves with opinion questions that require support from the book.

--Speaking: Students use their knowledge of the book and opinions with support to prepare and give a 3-5 minute book talk to persuade classmates to read the book.

-Listening: Students demonstrate active listening skills by completing a feedback form for each book talk. Students write down details from each book talk and evaluate whether they would like to read the book in the future.
