If you’re a parent and you know that your son or daughter has a book report project, you must make sure that he or she writes it properly. You were a student once and you know that it is not easy to make a book report write up especially if the book to be reviewed is a thick one.
A lot of students dread making a book report write up because they think it is boring. When was the last time you saw a kid reading a thick book? Or any book for that matter? You will be lucky enough to encounter a kid who enjoys writing a book report. For this reason, it is important to guide your child in preparing for his book report write up.
There are a few important things to remember to help your child in writing his book report. Of course, the actual book reading and the book report writing should only be done by him. You can only provide the inspiration and the guidance to get him on the right track.
Before creating his book report write up, you must tell your child to read the book in its entirety. Do not rely on CliffsNotes and other similar published materials. It can be considered cheating and those should only be used after the book report has been written so the reviewer can double check what has written.
You then should help your child outline his thoughts after reading the book. By doing this, he can follow an effective path in organizing his ideas and opinions of the book. When he already has a structure or a framework, writing the rest of the book report write up should then be much easier to accomplish.
