Want a no-prep, paper-less way for your students to show their comprehension of a novel that they have read? This resource supplies 40 individual creative oral presentation ideas, along with a number of presentations for groups. Many options are suitable for plays too. A big advantage is that YOU get a holiday from marking- hurrah! Some presentation options are suited to individually selected books. Others are better suited to a book that the entire class has some familiarity with. Great for literature circles and book clubs! A teacher rubric, self assessment and peer assessments are included.
