My Favorite Character and Me
Instead of the usual book report format which covers the story grammar--setting, plot, theme, point of view, characters--have your students zero in on their favorite book character and how similar or different they are to that personality. Here's what the book report will include:
1. Cover Page - The cover page illustrates the student's own version of what the cover should look like.
2. He/She Rocks! - The next page shows a drawing of his/her chosen character. Below the drawing is a description of that character--personality, wishes, dreams, values.
3. I Rock! - The third page shows the student's "self-portrait" and a description of himself/herself--personality, wishes, dreams, values.
4. My Favorite Character and Me - Refresh your students on Venn diagram lessons. On this page, the student presents a Venn diagram of himself/herself and his/her chosen character. Make sure to guide students accordingly on how to accomplish a Venn diagram.
