Creating a Mini Book Review Journal.
The production of a book review journal by students is suggested as a way of encouraging reading and of developing clear, expository writing. Guidelines are provided for the sequential development of such a journal. Criteria are offered for evaluating fiction and nonfiction books, with examples of annotations featuring style, period or setting of a novel, theme, plot, characterization, structure, spirit of the book, and illustrations. Brief discussions and examples are offered on the writing of annotations, abstracts, and literary notes. Suggestions are made for the layout and production of a book review journal as a class project. (JD)
