• BOOK LOG OUTLINE

    After reading your book, choose a question from your list that you would like to answer. (It may be a good idea to preview the questions while you’re reading so you may gather all the details from the story to help you fully develop your answers.)

     You may choose to type or neatly write your book log on looseleaf. Place your completed book log in the folder we provided you.

     

    Please follow the outline below:

    1. Introduction Paragraph:       
          Name the title and author of the book.  Give a brief summary of the plot (focus on the story’s    
          main problem and how it was solved). Use the graphic organizer we gave you to help you
          organize this paragraph

     

     2. Body Paragraphs:   

          The body paragraph(s) is where you will answer the question you chose from the list.  Be sure    
         that your answer is well-developed using examples and at least 3 supporting details from the    
         text. 
     

     3. Conclusion Paragraph:   

          Sum up your book log.  (You may even choose to share your opinion about the book).
