FUN FRIDAY: Books in boxes

What do you think of these clever little biographies-in-a-box? If you are a teacher interested in authentic assessments and if you are always seeing ideas that will bring out the creative sides of your students, read a bit about these pizza box book reports at TeacherGenius by TCI.

I really like the visual aspect as the box itself become an ad for the book. If everyone writes a report, it is hard for all other students to access all of that information, but if everyone creates this type of presentation, books can are on display and students can get information about many noteworthy men and women, not just the one figure they chose for the project. Further, all learners can browse the boxes to make decisions about books they might like to read next.
