Before break, my students turned in their latest independent book report. This was a different kind of book report, though. They have done plenty of non-fiction book reports, so I wanted to shake things up a bit. I created a Non-Fiction “book” report for the students in which they had to find a newspaper or magazine and pull out text features and respond to several prompts. Heres is the assignment as they received it.
|Each student turned in their magazine along with their assignments.|
|Students had several assignments to complete using different articles within their magazine. This assignment required students to select character traits based on a person mentioned in an article.|
|Several students chose to use Post It flags to label each of the required text features. This definitely made my job easy!|
Here are the documents, if you can use them!
