Basic Book Report Format - Privatewriting

is divided into three units: basic book report, pamphlet book report, and journalism book report. Students choose whatever books they wish to use as the subject matter for the first two units and for a journalism book report in the third unit. The Journalism adds a creative twist by having students select a nursery rhyme to use as the source of material for a news article.
