Digital Book Report

Here is an exciting way to encourage students to read a book and interpret it: Alan Sitimer’s Digital Book Report Contest.

Have your students pick their favorite book or a book from your lesson plan and create a song, performance, or debate. Tell them to crack open their creativity and use music, props, and costumes! But make sure that it covers the core standards.
Entries must be in by October 28.

Winners will receive a portion of $20,000 in prizes and, of course, bragging rights.

Alan Sitomer, creator of BookJam, was named California’s 2007 Teacher of the Year. He is also the author of many books that engage young adult readers.
