This writing prompt, project, and rubric is ready to use as a handout and assignment for students. It is more creative and user-friendly than a book report because students will not need to have finished reading the entire book before completing the assignment.
Skills assessed: (1) Students can formulate their own questions (open-ended questions, discussion question, questions used as attention-grabbers, etc.). (2) Students can summarize a text. (3) Students can make connections between a text and the real world.
