You have a book report due and now your teacher wants you to make a presentation on the book. How can you be original and not do what all the other student in class are doing?
You could prepare your book report in a newspaper style.
Go to your local arts and crafts store to get a small roll of thin craft paper. You know the kind like the cheerleaders hold up for football players to run through before games. This usually comes in a roll and if you do not want to buy a whole roll you may just be able to get a small portion. You can use this to make large sections for your newspaper. Make sure to use a large enough piece for each page and fold it in half just like a real newspaper. The paper is thin but you do not have to worry about writing on it. You can prepare headlines on your computer and cut them out and paste onto the craft paper with a glue stick.
Now when making your newspaper you will want the name of the newspaper to be the name of your book. The author can be listed as writer. The front page headline can be an interesting reason why you chose the book and then under that write the story which is a summary of what the book is about with a teaser so that they will want to read more. Make each headline page of the newspaper one of the titles from each chapter. Now if your book has chapters which are numbered Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 you will need to create your own. This is where your imagination comes into play and your teacher should reward you for ingenuity. The story under each page headline is your chapter information. Make sure to list the main characters and conflicts or problems that occur in the book. At the end you will want to make a conclusion of the book. You can even draw photos or clip art to insert in the photo. You can make advertisements throughout the newspaper with things from the story. This would be very clever and may show your teacher that you put a lot of time and thought into your project.
