Each week, Education World offers a new idea to help you "make over" boring book report formats. If you're looking for a way to spice up book reports -- and truly engage students in reading -- you've come to the right place. Check out this week's makeover idea
Students explore settings on the Internet.
Where did the story take place? When did it take place? Invite each student to surf the Web and find five Internet sites about the setting of a book he or she has read. Students then can recommend the sites to help others learn about the book's setting and/or time period before they read the book themselves.
