Homeschool Literature Audiobooks, Read-Aloud
Of course, we have always been expected to read the
best historical and classic
literature, and then we had to write a book report,
essay or term paper related
to each book. §
Writing a Book Report
The introductory paragraph should include the
Author, title and Publisher
of the book, as well as a brief descriptive summary.
The body of a book report
should contain an explanation of what the book is
about. It is perfectly
acceptable to include your opinions about the story.
You should examine the author's purpose or main them
of the book. You can
then start to describe the setting. the tone, and
the main characters in
the story. While you are giving a detailed
explanation of the plot,
be sure to include a discussion of the conflict,
climax and resolution.
Then, proceed to analyze and critique the book. Be
sure to explain or support
your opinions. Then, in the conclusion of your book
report, discuss what
impression the book left you with and whether you
would recommend it to others.
Writing a Persuasive Essay
A persuasive essay is a paper written with the
purpose of convincing the
reader to agree with your point of view or to take a
course of action based
on your written argument or recommendation.
First and foremost, remember to use evidence to
support your opinion. Quotations
from experts, statistics and facts, reason and
logic; these help to strengthen
your argument. If you anticipate that your reader
will have doubts, you can
also include evidence that disproves common
misconceptions on your subject.
You should build to a strong conclusion, and end
with a summary that leaves
the reader with a clear and memorable impression of
your opinion. The purpose
is to persuade your audience to agree with you, or
call them to action in
a positive and logical way.
