Book Report: Character Insight

This book report assignment, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner? is a novel way to invite students to write a narrative essay based on two different books or literary works.

I first used it with seventh graders as a way to learn more about them at the beginning of the school year when they were asked to write about two books from their summer reading list.  This also can be adapted to be an oral presentation.

I’m confident you’ll be able for figure out additional ways to discover which students read and write about books and who can accurately imitate and punctuate realistic dialogue. Give it a try with Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner With careful oversight to avoid revealing family names, this assignment could be an interesting one to share in safe online environments with students in other schools, states or countries. It would be a good way to share specifics about cultural practices and cuisines.
