Dear Amy: How can I make my school projects and presentations more interesting? — Anna, Minneapolis, Minn.
Dear Anna: With a little creativity, it's easy to turn an average report or project into something special. Instead of writing a report on a famous historical figure or literary character, you could create a blog written from the viewpoint of the person you are studying. Blogger, blogger.com, and WordPress, wordpress.com, are two popular free choices.
Make your book report shine by building a wiki to organize information about the book. Be sure to add some pictures, too! Create your own wiki for free at wikidot.com. For more creative project ideas, visit ereadingworksheets.com/
If you are working on a presentation, consider adding some multimedia, such as video clips, a slideshow or music. If used appropriately, they can help your audience learn even more. For example, if you are presenting a report on Pablo Picasso, you could create a slideshow to feature his most important paintings and show how his style changed over time.
