Very Nice! I would like to see some examples of student work. This is a bit different then the book reports I had to do in front of the class as a student. I like the Interaction connection part of the assignment. Where students are asked to create similarities between their challenges and the challenges the character in the biography has faced. This gives the assignment more meaning to the student because it is about him and he has to think about the text to relate it to him.

I do a lot with different types of genres and found this lesson to be very interesting. Students are required to write a report, create a visual representation, a video book report, and research and respond to other students’ responses. This activity allows for all students to become active participants in the classroom through classroom presentations, and responding to other reports, in writing; students are also creating a book reports using many different resources such as Word, Paint, and video.

At first, I thought that it would be nice to have the students do a video book report, but then I went back and reviewed the lesson again, to be sure I did not miss anything, and I did; this lesson already included the use of video. I do not see any holes in this lesson and plan on trying it out in my classroom.
