When I first began to have my students write book reports, They were to list the characters, setting, theme, short plot, problem, conclusion. Unfortunately, this was so BOOORRING for me to read and the students to do.  Consequently, they hated writing book reports. Then an awesome colleague shared this idea with me and I’m so thankful he did. Fortunately, it made the assignment more enjoyable for all of us.
