I'm working on teaching my HS about Book reports. I remember doing book reports in school and found them to be very helpful in my love of reading. My memory is a little missing. I was wondering if any of you HSers knew of any good websites that would help me teach my HS about Book Reports. Like material that should go into a Book Report & Ect. ~Or~ any Ideas on a new or different approach of addressing a book report. Maybe verbaly or both verbaly and writen. My HS is in 8th grade and really has never done a book report so I was thinking of some thing on a 4th through 6th grade Book Repot Level. Thanks for any links or ideas.

I have a book on my shelf that is book report forms, they are set by genre of the book. They have both writing and activities you do with the book. When I taught public school it was what I had the kids use in my classroom. I made them do 4 book reports a quarter. Next time I go down stairs I will pull the book up and get the title for you.

For literature next year my son will be reading six classics and then writing a book report on them. I wanted to have some ideas for him to do besides just a traditional book report so I have enjoyed the posts so far and look forward to future ones. Thanks everyone!

If you haven't seen or heard of Institute for Excellence in Writing http://writing-edu.com/writing/ you should check it out. It is an amazing program to teach kids 'how' to write with concrete directions. I began homeschooling my 7th grader for the first time this past October. He HATED writing. When we first began, anytime I asked him to write anything he balked (but was very agreeable about EVERYTHING else.) We went through the SWI-B (Student Writing Intensive, lvl B...for middle schoolers) from November through March and he's a totally different person about writing now. We'll be doing the SICC-B (Student Intensive Continuation Course, lvl B) this next fall. I'm also using it with my new-to-homeschooling 3rd grader, but plan to begin it more formally in the fall with her (SWI-A, for her.)
