Procedure

First, you might need to explain to the students how to write a book review. They should write the name of the book and the author and what they thought of the book. They also need to state their reasons why they liked the book. They also need to include a short summary of the book to entice the readers to read it. When they write their summary, they need to include the main character and the villain as well as the main points of the book and what the main character has experienced. What happened in this book? The important thing is to leave the readers hanging so they will want to pick up the book and read it. Book reviews include the writer's opinion of the book and not just the plot summary, which includes only the plot. When they have completed their rough draft of their book reviews, they can edit their work for spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, and paragraph structure. After that, they can type the final copy on the computer and submit them to you for grading.

Grading

You can grade them on their book reviews on the organization and on spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, and paragraph structure.
