As we ring in the New Year, we’re also preparing to bid adieu to the 2nd quarter of our school year. With that, we have book review projects and presentations coming up in the next two weeks.
Today in class, students had time to work on their writing assignment which is to be turned in next Monday, January 10th. The written piece should include these three basic sections:
- A summary of the main problem the characters faced
- A compare and/or contrast with another specific book
- Specific reasons why they would or would not recommend this book to others
I shared this example with students today as a way they can begin their assignment. The only piece this example does not include is a comparison/contrast with another book, though it can easily be tucked in before the final paragraph.
