book report and post
Book report is to be presented in a memorandum of at least three (3), but no more than five (5) pages.
The memorandum must be single-spaced using 12-point Arial or Times New Roman font. Leave a space between sections and paragraphs in the same manner as these instructions. Margins must be at least one inch on each side of the page. If quotes are used from the book, give the page number in parenthesis at the end of the sentence (p. 1). If using an e-book, cite the chapter where the quote originated. Bullet points may be used, but the entire document cannot be a series of bullet points. No additional sources (book, articles, websites, etc.) should be used. No reference section at the end of the memorandum.
Do not put a title on the page.
Sentences should be concise and varied in length and structure. Word choice should be precise and accurate. There can be no misspellings, grammatical errors, or edits. Use correct capitalization. You should cover each of the topics sufficiently enough that someone who has never read the book would come away with a good understanding of the answers to each of the report questions.
