Book Report Assignment
Here are the basics:
 The book must be 150 or more pages.
 The book must be a new book to you. (It cannot be from summer reading or from your reading log from the last quarter.)
 It can be fiction or nonfiction.
 Your report is due on Wednesday, February 17th.
 It must be typed in Times New Roman, 12-point font. (If you are presenting in something other than a paper, make sure your font is approved by the teacher. I’m trying to avoid issues with legibility. )
Since I cannot construct a rubric for every single type of report, I will grade you on the following:
 neatness
 proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation
 knowledge of text determined by information presented in project
 knowledge of text determined by brief interview
What kind of knowledge will be looked for?
 knowledge of characters, exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution (fiction)
 knowledge of content of nonfiction book. How does the information from the text affect the audience? (The audience is your teacher and fellow students.)
You may work by yourself or in groups of no larger than three.
 groups are from your period
 groups must make contract for teacher and for members of the group (Two copies – one for teacher, one for group)
 all members of groups must have parent’s signature (Group work can be difficult to coordinate. Your parent must be made aware that you have made this choice.)
What choices do I have for a book report format?
 Go to the “Book Report” tab on Mrs. Sadenwasser’s webpage for ideas.
 Go to this site for even more ideas: http://teachnet.com/lessonplans/language-arts/more-ideas-than-ever-book-reports/ -------------------------------------------------------------------------Name ____________________________________ Date ________ Pd. ______ Due: Tuesday, January 12th

...Think About It Have you ever thought about it Or tried to comprehend Nailing your child to a cross To die for other’s sins Then to have those same people Denounce you and your son And go along with their sinful lives And ignore what you have done That’s what we all do When Easter comes around We hunt candy and eggs and celebrate A bunny coming to town And while all those things are good and well We should concentrate on the cross And remember the pain and suffering When Jesus died for us Have you ever thought about it Or tried to comprehend Having your child die for others But at his memorial -none attend And go along with their sinful lives Like it's just another day And forgetting the ultimate price That Jesus had to pay That’s what we all do When Sunday comes around We sleep in late or go to the lake Or simply lay around And while all those things are good and well We should concentrate on the Lord And remember him each Sunday By worshipping in one accord Have you ever thought about it Or tried to comprehend Your child being able to save souls from hell But no one tells their friends They go along with their sinful lives Never trying to help save a soul And make money, success and having fun Their primary goal That’s what we all do When we don’t witness to others We’d rather speak of sports or gossip With our sisters and out brothers And while that’s all good and well We should concentrate on salvation And remember...
