Reflection: Rigor Writing a Simple Book Report With Your Listening Center - Section 3: Independent Practice


I've been doing this listening center for many years.  As a teacher, you may be able to relate to what was going on here - because I'd been doing the same thing for while, I had been on auto pilot. It wasn't until I looked through my student work samples and thought about the Common Core standards that I said to myself, "I really need to modify the book report and challenge my students more so they can master these standards." I made this video Student Work and Modifications Book Reports.mp4 that shows some student work samples of the book reports and what I could do to push my students even further.  I've also included another book report, Book Report Number Two.pdf, for you so you can push your students to meet the standards as well.
