1. What kind of book can students present?
Any book a student enjoys and is at his/her reading level
Fiction or non-fiction books; narrative, informational, or persuasive writing
Books in any language -- We have had books presented in Arabic, French, Spanish and other languages in the past!
For younger students still learning to read, any book they enjoy being read to is also welcome!
2. What information should I include on my storyboard display?
There are many elements that good authors use to write great books -- Share some that you felt were most important. For example:
Why is the title significant or well-chosen?
Is the author also the illustrator?
Who are the main characters, or what are the main ideas?
What characters or ideas did you find surprising, fun, interesting, or unique?
How does the author want you to feel when you are reading this book? How does the author convey tone or importance?
Is there a conflict, a problem, or a key issue in the book?
Is there a solution to the conflict, or a suggestion for readers?
Who would you recommend this book to?
How would you rate this book (how many stars from 1 to 5)? Why?
3. How can I make my presentation more interesting?
Many presenters dress up as a character from their book
You could make items that relate directly to your book and display them in front of your storyboard
