Today students worked on their Invention Convention ideas, but also wrote a book critique for "This Dark Endeavor". We have been reading this Kenneth Oppel book for a few months during Flex and have finally come to its conclusion. Now that we have finished the book we are going to be assessing the students on their construction of understanding of the book through listening. The students are to write a book critique using the follow seven steps (questions). These are due on Tuesday, January 23, 2018.
Steps for Book Critique:
1. Title of book, name of author, and the names of three characters.
2. Write a synopsis of the book using headings for intro, initial incident, rising action, climax, resolution.
3. On a scale of 1 – 10 (1 being the worst, 10 being the best) what would you rate this book? Explain your rating. (Why did or didn’t you like the book? Give 4 specific examples/reasons)
4. Describe the best part. Explain why you think it is important to the book, and why you think it is the best part of the book.
5. Who was your favourite character in the book? Explain why this character is important to the book. How would the story change without them?
6. Name a character who you think is unnecessary in the book. Why would the book be better off without this character?
7. Would you recommend this book to friends your age outside of Nose Creek School? Why/Why not?
