Point of View Reports

Found in: reading; test taking & study skills

Many times my students want to do a book report on a book they really enjoyed in 6th grade. I discourage that practice because introducing students to new authors is my priority. However, when I am able to make an exception, I require the student to write a point of view evaluation of the book. The paper has to review the book from the eyes of a sixth grader and then compare and contrast that to the eyes of an eighth grader. Two benchmarks are covered: making the reading/writing connection and demonstrating mastery of comparison/contrast papers. An added bonus is that students learn that re-reading a novel brings new insight. They apply that skill to study skill applications.
