    What are your teacher's instructions about a book report?

    This site has a lot of ideas for the format of a book report.

    Well many teachers have different rubrics for how they want their students to do the book report. usualy a book report contains:

    The Standard Format


    Introductory Paragraph
    This paragraph should include the title of the book and name of the author. It will also describe the setting and quickly summarize what the book is about. Don't get too detailed here. It's just the introduction.


    Body Paragraphs
    This is where the real content enters the picture. By reading this part of your book report (three to four paragraphs), your teacher will be able to determine whether you read the book and understood the story.




    Start by describing the main characters of the story. Then, describe the conflict. Common conflicts include man vs. man, man vs. nature and man vs. himself. Your book may present a different kind of conflict. Describe it in detail.

    The remaining body paragraphs should summarize the plot and describe how it relates to the conflict. Begin with the rising action, the part of the story where events build. Then describe the climax, where the story reaches its most dramatic or interesting point. The third paragraph should describe the falling action, when the conflict or problem is resolved.


    The Conclusion
    This is an appropriate place to state your personal opinion of the book. What did you think of it? Describe its strengths and weaknesses. Would you recommend it to others? Why or why not? Remember, a winning paper will use examples from the book to back up comments.


    I would post the link to that site but it will not allow me

    Even if you cannot post the link, you can tell the name of the website where you looked it up ... maybe like this:

    www (dot) cvusd (dot) k12 (dot) ca (dot) us / English / writing_reports
    (That's not a real website; it's just to give you and idea how to tell what it is if you cannot post a link.)
