Alternatives to Book Reports Being able to consume, critique, and create media is so important for our 21st century students. While I love to write about books in my book reviews, lots of children don't share my enthusiasm. If your kids or students groan at the mere mention of writing a book report, consider some alternative ideas. Instead of a book report, have your kids make a book trailer! You can find many examples of downloadable book trailers suitable for children at Book Trailers - Movies for Literacy. Making a book trailer or any short video with your kids/students is a perfect time to discuss copyright with them. Instead of a book report, have your kids design a poster. Instead of a book report, have your kids design an advertisement for the book. Instead of a book report, have your kids design a cartoon or comic. Instead of a book report, kids can turn their family, pets and friends into stars. Instead of a book report, sum up a book (or movie or song) in four icons.

gnitive Differences Between Adults & Children Author: Jeff Durham - Updated: 15 September 2012| Comment There’s an old saying that goes “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” and, whether you believe that or not, the same principle cannot be applied to humans. In fact, adults can learn just as easily as children but there are several basic differences between what works effectively for adults and what works best for children. Experience Of Life As an adult, you’ll have had far more experience of life in general than a child and whilst this can help an adult more than a child when it comes to learning, it can also hinder them and a child’s lesser experiences can occasionally prove more beneficial. How Adults And Children Use Different Techniques For Learning For an adult learner, their experiences of life will have been far more vast and diverse than that of a child’s and their brain’s maturity will enable them to apply their learning through relating it to certain experiences they’ve had. The Significance Of ‘Purpose’ In Learning
