I’m not sure how long my elementary school has been doing this but we have been there for 8 years and the program evolves each year. This year it’s more computerize and the short book reports have been dropped. Also, less writing of titles and what kids thought (thank goodness). It is really fun and the kids pore around the standings every day and take this very seriously! An extra P.E. is at stake with our wonderful P.E. teacher!!!
This article describes four exercises that use authentic literature asthe basis for extemporaneous presentations. Students select theirown readings and write short book reports about them; in my course, thebook reports are due every other week, and students bring both theirreport and their book or article to class on the due date. Bookreport days are often the liveliest days of class, with studentsengaged and on-task as they share their readings with each other.
Term Paper: Write a Short Book Report
Do you think that preparing a short story book report will be easier than writing a usual book report? On the one hand, it is really so. At least, reading and comprehending a short story will take you less time and efforts than reading a big novel.
However, writing the short story book report itself can be the same tricky. Although you have to consider a short story, your report should include all basic elements that a typical book report has. Let us remind you about them.
Characters in a short story book report
The main characters of a story should be presented in any short story book report. Explain who they are, how they change in the course of the story, relations between what characters you think are the most important.
Setting in a short story book report
Describe where and when the story takes place. Do you think the chosen time and place are appropriate for the story?
Conflict in a short story book report
Any story, regardless of its length, has a conflict, the main problem. You should definitely touch upon it in your short story book report.
Climax and resolution in a short story book report
Sooner or later, the main problem or conflict reaches its peak and then the author presents a resolution. Describe the boiling point of your short story and explain how the main conflict was resolved.
So, the short story book report should include these essential elements. Do not forget that you can also use various forms to prepare your report and make it stand out, e.g. make an interview, a diary entry, a newspaper article, etc.
