Q:

How do you write a book report?

A:

To write a book report, a student needs to give a summary of the book and then provide commentary concerning what he or she enjoyed or did not  enjoy about the novel. Information about the book is provided at the beginning of the report  and is  followed by the summary and the student's critique.

Step 1: Open the report by stating the book's author and title

The reader of the report needs to immediately know what book the student is referring to.

Step 2: Summarize the book's plot

The summary needs to include the names of important characters, key events and ideas and important quotations. Students should only incorporate aspects that are vital to the book's plot.

Step 3: Analyze the book

When analyzing the book, the student may provide information concerning themes, motifs, characters and plot elements that he or she liked or disliked.
