Video Book Report/Oral Presentation
Students will read and research a fictional novel of their choice and prepare an oral presentation to be presented to the class. A two to five minute video summary of their book report must be presented in a YouTube video during their presentation. Students will need to identify characters, summarize the plot, discuss the rising and falling action, detail the work’s historical background, identify the theme and author’s purpose of the novel in their final report. Then, in their oral presentation to the class, they will include a brief introduction of their novel choice, their video, and roughly a two to three minute speech about whether they liked the book or not. Students will then comment on the YouTube video with feedback on their peers presentations.
