A great project that incorporates reading, writing, and technology! The kids in my classroom love this project because it uses PowerPoint!
The project asks students to read a certain amount of minutes per week, and then choose one particular book to review and present to their peers. The review is displayed through PowerPoint and includes the following slides: title, opinion, three supporting details, and a conclusion. The project works great as a transition to writing five-paragraph book reviews or literary essays. It is a great addition to Writer's and Reader's Workshop, and draws on many Common Core Standards.
Includes a grading rubric based on the Standards Based Grading system, but can easily be adapted to the four-point, A-F grading system. Appropriate for fourth through ninth grade. I use it with my fifth graders and they love it!
