What you need to know before doing your bookreport: 

Your bookreport is not only a means to check if you have read and understood the book, doing a bookreport also helps you to analyse the book and to express your opinion on it in a well-founded manner. It is important that you learn how to do this, as you frequently need to do this at university. 

Answer the questions as explicitely as possible. Answers that are so generic that they could fit nearly any book will not be scored as correct.

General information:

  • You can only read books of Advanced level or higher
  • Your first bookreport/book-film rpeort should be handed in week 42 at the latest, the second one in week 7 at the latest
  • All bookreports should be done in the Study Centre
  • No teacher will allow you to take a bookreport form home or fill in a bookreport form without supervision 
  • You need your book in order to do your bookreport. No book, no bookreport 
  • You are not allowed to use any kind of documentation while doing your bookreport 
  • You are not allowed to read a filmed novel. You already do that for your book-film report. Check IMDb if you don't know whether your book has been made into a movie.

Pay attention:

If your bookreport is rejected (Refer), you will have to choose another book and do a new bookreport. However, this will not change the points in your e-portfolio.

Once your bookreport has been scored, you cannot make changes anymore. Therefore, it is important to do it as accurately as possible the first time.
