eBooks and Reading Assignments


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.
