Quick Overview

Ban the Book Report argues that the main purpose of reading
assignments is to encourage rather than discourage reading. This practical book
inspires teachers to go beyond narrow and analytical book reports by exploring
the potential of oral and visual activities. It offers response assignments
that are more closely aligned with the reasons that people read -; to explore
personal interests, to make important emotional connections and to enjoy
themselves. A comprehensive analysis of the expectations and possibilities of
independent reading, Ban the Book Report is ideal for teachers who value
showing as well as telling to engage students in thoughtful personal response.
