Group Novel Projects

Your Last Hurrah!

Objective: Create a compelling presentation that encourages others that your book should be #1 on their Summer Reading List

Step 1: Create a Smore

It's Easy. Smore.com - then you just make it pretty!

Step 2: Establish the Context

What does your audience need to know about the setting to understand where the novel is coming from?

Step 4: Write a Review

This will be the most "academic" part of your presentation.

You will write a review (using the instructions on the UNC page below) that includes an Introduction, Summary, Analysis & Evaluation, and Conclusion. Be sure you convince your audience WHY this book should be #1 on their summer reading list!

You will publish these on Amazon and Goodreads.


POST your review HERE in your Smore.

Step 5: Create a "60 Second Recap"-type Video for your Book and embed it into your Smore.

Use QuickTime or iMovie (or the application of your choice!), then upload to YouTube to create a Review video of your novel and embed it into your Smore.

An example (and many others!) of what I am looking for is HERE. <-Examine this for both CONTENT and STRUCTURE. Remember your "Objective!"
A Thousand Splendid Suns (Book Review)

Step 6: List "Other Books Like This"

so that your audience can identify it with other books and authors they may have read or may WANT to read (as #2 on their summer reading list, of course!) after your amazing presentation convinces them that your book needs to be #1!

Step 7: Tweet your Smore @_MrsBrownlee AND -if your author is alive and on Twitter, to your author, too!!

We seriously have authors who respond respond every time we do this - so cool!!

Be sure to leave the "Comments" section active and the URL intact. Maybe Smore.com will notice, too!
