100 Novel Ways with Book Reports.
Decker, Isabelle M.
This guide for junior and senior high school teachers of literature describes 100 post-reading activities--including critiques, debates, symposiums, forums, research papers, minilectures, and critical analyses--which were designed to stimulate student interest, encourage reading, and develop critical thinking. As a summary, a chart lists (1) the form of each report (oral and/or written), (2) its degree of difficulty, (3) the type of reading involved, (4) the grade level it is designed for, and (5) whether it is designed for individual, small groups, or an entire class. A list of selected sources for teachers and/or students covers reading improvement and enrichment, literary criticism, writing improvement, oral communication, audio-visual aids, writing incentives, and bibliographies and bibliographical aids.
