Book reports are just boring. But instructors still assign them, and students still must write them. It’s the same old song and dance:
If, however, your instructor lets you loose from the “chains” of the traditional book report and decides to assign creative book report projects instead, then you at least can have some fun while you prepare you report.
You are so used to writing the old boring book reports, you may have trouble coming up with a unique idea to present your book in a creative way. Long ago and far away, in the days before the Internet, this would have been a real problem. You would have to rely on your own ingenuity or suggestions from family and friends. Today, however, you have the web, and you know how to find ideas for creative book reports – a simple Google search will give you loads of websites that have fresh ideas. And if you refine that search and ask for examples of creative book reports, you will get actual images and explanations for crafting them.
One of the things you have to be mindful of as you search for creative book report ideas is that a lot of websites are for elementary level students and teachers. And the ideas will be elementary and simple as well. On the other hand, you can get some ideas that will trigger ways to enhance and expand a simple project into one that is more complex than the one meant for a young child.
Refining the search even further, go for high school or college ideas- you’ll find more sophisticated products such as podcasts, power point slide presentations, dioramas, murals, storyboards, etc. One student even produced a book report that took on the format of a science lab report with the author’s theme as his hypothesis.
If others in the course have read the same book, this is a perfect opportunity to divide and conquer. Many heads are certainly better than one, so a group book report project may result in a far more creative report than you would have designed and developed on our own. And group reports lend themselves to many more presentation possibilities – role playing, panel discussions, etc. And if any members of the group are artistically inclined, think of the possibilities – poems, art, songs.
If you are still struggling with ideas, here are a few that are relatively simple that you can pull together, even if it is the last minute.
These are just a few ideas – your search will come up with many more. The complexity of your project will really depend upon how much time you have, the others you are working with, and how much interest you have in it. The weight of the grade compared to other assignments in the class should also be considered. If exams and papers are worth more, then keep your project simple.
