In the brief video above, Monica discusses how you can use Adobe Slate, which is her favorite book report tool. However, Adobe Slate is now inside the Adobe Spark app under the name Spark Page. An account is required to use this online tool, but it is free to use.

Students can bring their book reports to life with Spark Page. Have your students add content such as photos, videos, as well as text for a well-rounded presentation. Students can import photos from their device or from a cloud service. They can even search through the Spark Page gallery or use a template. Students can create individual sections for each segment of the book report: plot, characters, setting, and more. The end result is an interactive, beautifully-made book report that gets students excited to tell their story.

What is your favorite tool to make book reports exciting? Let us know in the Comments below.
