The students are to read a book of choice. Then create a story map on paper that includes: title and author, character descriptions of three to five characters, setting description, problem, five (minimum) important events, the solution, and what the character learned. The students will create a PowerPoint presentation of at least 15 slides based upon the information on the story map. The presentation must contain pictures, animation and sound. The presentation could include information about the author. Each student will present his or her book report to the class. This is a great way to create interest in books.
