Book Report Projects

Book Report Projects

You know the importance of book reports as educators. A book report project can be used to enhance learning in middle school, high school, and college. The book report project that you choose must be appropriate for each age group. However, it should also challenge the minds of students. Book report projects don’t have to be difficult.

Below are some ideas for book report projects. You can assign book reports projects to students in fifth- and sixth grades. We recommend Number the Stars and Mrs. Frisby as well as Glass Slippers Give You Blisters and The Frog Princess. It would be great to assign book reports for seventh- and eighth-grade students Out of the Dust, The Iron Ring, and The Sea of Trolls.

For high school students, the top choices for book reports and projects would be Persuasion and Lolita as well as The Da Vinci Code and To Kill a Mockingbird. If the book reports are for college students, then the reading level would increase. Seize the Day and The Ox-Bow Incident are some of the recommended books. Book report projects shouldn’t be too difficult, but not overwhelming for anyone of any age.

Students need to understand how book reports are laid out. In middle school, students would be taught the correct layout for book reports projects. This would help them as they move through school. Book report projects require an introduction (author name, year of publication, etc), a body (which is the main part of book reports projects), and a conclusion or closing remarks.

You could also give students a book project rubric if they so desired. This would allow them to identify the parts of their book report projects that will make up the majority of their score. Students should write their book reports projects, but professional academic writers are also available if they need help.
