Some people think that book report is an eenie-meenie… but little did they know that book report is not at all an easy task. A book report is a real deal challenge for most students out there to think and write critically about what they have read.
Most of the time, some students interpret the book the other way around. Or they get the wrong assumption on what the author is telling. So how can one say it is too simple to narrate a story or let alone report it?
Today, let this blog be of help! Check out our effective and efficient tips below in writing for a good summary or a book report.
Read Before You Write
When I say read, I meant to read it from cover until the last. Only then that you would really know and understand what the book is telling you. You need to remember that the book is just like a tip of an iceberg, you can’t just stop at the first few chapters or else you will be missing all the important details at the bottom.
Pay Attention to Details
An author can be so tricky in leaving you clues without you recognizing it. So better pay attention to details, you can indicate some important tiny points that can support the overall book. You can also try using sticky flags to mark pages or highlighters to make sure you get note of these details.
Develop a Rough Outline
As you go with your reading, make sure that you also do a rough outline so that by the time you are finally done reading it you have eventually recorded several possible themes or approaches to your objectives. This is a great way for you to review too!
