Paper Assignment Background When an instructor assigns a  book report , generally she/he wants to  see evidence that 1) you have read the work, 2) that you have  understood the work and can say something intelligent about it and 3)  that you have formed an opinion. Traditionally, book reports include the following four parts An Introduction      (20%).      Here you should name the work, the author, and begin describing its  main characteristics. For instance, is it a novel, an essay, a poem, or a  piece of non-fiction? Is it written in narrative, argumentative or expository  style? Is there anything else a general audience should know about it?  After dealing with such questions, move to your thesis. Your thesis  states your evaluation of the work, the dominant point(s) you will stress.  It is usually one sentence, neither overly broad nor overly general and is  never a question. Your thesis should be underlined . See the bottom of  this page for thesis guidelines.
