When I first began to have my students write book reports, Their assignment was to list the characters, setting, theme, short plot, problem, and conclusion. Unfortunately, this was so BOOORRING for me to read and the students to do. Consequently, they hated writing book reports. Then an awesome colleague shared this idea with me and I’m so thankful he did. Fortunately, it made the task more enjoyable for all of us..
