Guidelines and Grading Rubric for
Biography/Autobiography Book Report
When: Due date is Tuesday, April 20, 2010.
Where: Students will present their Book Report in front of the class as an oral presentation.
Who and What: Students may choose either Option One or Option Two.
a. Option One: Dress up as a character from your book and tell about the character's life
in the first person.
b. Option Two: Create 8-10 questions that will be passed out to classmates prior to your
presentation. You will still dress up as the main character from your book; however, you will only
be required to make a short introduction about your character. You will then take questions from
the audience (the same questions you have already passed out to your classmates!). If you
choose this option, please ensure you have rehearsed your answers to the questions.
