Book Report Makeover: Front Page News

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 must consider setting, character, plot, and more in this book "reporting" activity.

Have each student create the front page of a newspaper that reports on the events in a book just read instead of in their actual community. The newspaper page might include news stories, gossip about social events, wedding announcements and obituaries, a weather report, an editorial or editorial cartoon, ads, and so on. The title of the newspaper should be appropriate to the book.
