Book Review Blog

This is your blog to write about great books you would recommend to other students and to find out about books you might enjoy.

http://trinityk8.edublogs.org/

 

Keep these ideas in mind when you write your review:

 

  • Describe the setting of the book. How does it compare or contrast to the world you know? A book's setting is one of its most vital components — particularly for a book like To Kill a Mockingbird, which is set in the past. Does the author make you feel like you're a part of the setting? Can you picture the book's setting if you close your eyes? As you write, try to pass on to your reader the sense of the setting and place that the author has provided.

 

  • Describe the book's main characters. Does the writer make you believe in them as people? Why or why not? Think about whether you like the characters and about how liking them or disliking them makes you feel about the book. As you write about the characters, use examples of things they've said or done to give a sense of their personalities

.  

  • Give your reader a taste of the plot, but don't give the surprises away. Readers want to know enough about what happens in a book to know whether they'll find it interesting. But they never want to know the ending! Summarize the plot in a way that will answer some questions about the book, but leave other questions in the reader's mind. You may want to make a list of questions about the book before you begin.

 

Be sure to include the author's name!

 

Write the book review in an MS Word document and save it to the shared drive in the folder named "6th grade book reviews". The name of your document should be the book title your first name.
