Book Report Project Name: ______________________ Book Title: Author: Genre: Page Total: Period: 1st 2nd

______________________________________ ______________________________________ ______________________________________ _________ pages

Directions: Students will read a book of their choice. All books need to be preapproved by me in order to count. All information can also be found on http://kmschauncey.blogspot.com along with additional examples. The second project is due Wednesday, November 2, 2011. Which projects they will do must be chosen on Monday, October 17th (the day we return from Fall Break).
1) Scrapbook – Create a scrapbook of the story. Minimum of 10 pages. May include pictures, photos, words, souvenirs, memories, letters, diary entries, etc. 2) Glogster (http://edu.glogster.com/) – Online multimedia poster maker. If you are interested in this, you will need to get an account from me. Include general information about the book, pictures, videos, text, etc. Glogster projects must be published when you finish them, and then you must send your link to me via my blog. 3) Podcast Book Talk – Create an audio recording talking about your book. Plot, characters, review. Podcasts must be done either before or after school with Mr. Chauncey. 4) Triorama – Create a 3d triorama that highlights three major scenes from the book: beginning, middle, and end. 5) Comic book – Create a comic book illustrating a summary of the book. Minimum of 5 pages. Must be full color and put together like a comic book. 6) Book Trailer – Create a trailer for a book using Animoto (http://animoto.com/ ). The trailer must give a preview of the book and make people want to read it. It must include dynamic pictures, good music that works for what you are trying to tell, and videos, if appropriate. Submit your Animoto link via blog. 7) Soundtrack – Write and perform three songs/raps that summarize the book and talk about the characters. Students may either come before or afterschool to record it or record it on their own at home. In this case, they will need to provide a CD with three different tracks on it, for each song. Songs must have titles. 8) Sequel – Write what happens after the book ends. It must be an additional 3 chapters, a minimum of 8 pages (handwritten) or 4 pages typed. You must include characters from your book in your sequel. It must either be typed or neatly handwritten. 9) Create your own project – All projects must be preapproved by me. I have the right to turn down any project suggestion. Please have a back-up plan in place.
