This is my 1st year teaching, so I'm a little confused on book reports. I would like my students to do a book report (with a guided format) on a book that they choose (with my help). Many of my students need quite a bit of help when writing or talking about what they read. To give as much help as I think some of them will need, I think I would need to read the books. So, do most teachers read all of the books that their students are doing book reports on? Or do they not let them choose? Or do they just see what they can do independently?
