This book report includes a seven page guided response, including a character analysis worksheet. There are a total of 49 short answer questions for the student to complete as he reads the novel. It can be used as a whole group activity while reading the book.
Because many students abhorred traditional book reports, especially at-risk students, I developed a guided reading response sheet for designated books required each semester that were personal reads. This assignment offers page numbers so that students can easily find answers. When students learn the skill to identify answers, state test scores rise. These guided responses increased grade level scores yearly for students who completed them.
