Students will use their book review graphic organizer to analyze the following components of their book club books:
Importance of setting
Characters and their traits
Story plot (problem, climax, and resolution)
Students will then determine the author’s purpose and evaluate whether he or she achieved their purpose using details from the text. They will form a personal response to explain how the book made them feel.
Finally, students will be asked whether they would recommend this book to someone, why or why not, and who they would recommend it to.
Students will then create a unique project of their choosing (poster, essay, PowerPoint, pamphlet, etc.) to display the information collected in the graphic organizer.
