     Book Projects
    Each Marking Period must be a different project choice. 
    See me if you are doing a nonfiction book project
     

    *Project #1-3 should have a cover. It should include the title of the book, a picture, and author. Your name should be in the bottom right corner.

     

    1.   Journal Entries- Type two journal entries from the point of view of one of the main characters. Your entries should focus on a major event in the book. In your entry, discuss the event in detail and use text evidence to support your ideas. Remember to include the character’s thoughts and feelings about the event. (About 1 page each). Your last page will include an opinion paragraph about the book. Be sure to use text based evidence from the book to support whether you liked or disliked it. 

     

    2.   Picture BookYou will retell what the book was about by making a picture book (at least 5 pages). On each page, you are retelling what happened in the book in sequential order. Each page will have a few sentences explaining or retelling what is happening in the detailed illustration (drawing) that connects to the plot. You may type or write the description of the scene you illustrated. Your last page will include an opinion paragraph about the book. Be sure to use text based evidence from the book to support whether you liked or disliked it. 

     

    3.   Song- Write and perform an original song that tells what your book is about. Include information about the characters, main plot, and resolution in your song. Type the lyrics to the song. On the back or another sheet of paper, type an opinion paragraph about the book. Be sure to use text based evidence from the book to support whether you liked or disliked it.  You may perform for Mrs. Vanderspiegel or the entire class. (About 2 pages of lyrics)

      

    4.   Book Review- Make a video of yourself giving a book review. Be sure to have a planned script and practice before making the final video. Get creative and have fun with it. Dress up as a character or put on a show. You can't just sit and talk to the camera. In your video, you need to include: the book title and author, the main characters with a brief description of each, a plot summary, and your opinion of the book. Be sure to use text based evidence from the book to support whether you liked or disliked it.  The video will be played for the class. It should be about 2-3 minutes long.
