PowerPoint Book Report


A different way of presenting a book report utilizing technology

Anticipatory Set:

Teach students the basics of creating a PowerPoint show by having them take notes on what to do and where to click before they get to the lab.

Required Materials:

  • Computer disk, rewritable CD, or data stick for each student to save their work


The students are to read a fiction book at least 200 pages in length. Then create a story map on paper that includes: title and author, character descriptions of three to five characters, setting description, problem, five (minimum) important events, the solution, and what the character learned. The students will create a PowerPoint presentation of at least 15 slides based upon the information on the story map. The presentation must contain pictures, animation and sound. The presentation could include information about the author. Each student will present his or her book report to the class. This is a great way to create interest in books.
