I have always thought that book reports are important. They are a great way to determine if student actually understands what they are reading, and they are a great way to practice writing. However, after a while, writing traditional book reports can get boring. Over the years, we have tried different ways to still do book reports, but in a way that is fun and interesting. We have added art, drama, and technology to the mix. This variety allows students to use their talents and to realize how to express what they know through other media. Plus, it keeps them from being bored!
