    I've looked but can't find a description of how long a mini-report should be. I have a dialectic and rhetoric level student. Thanks! Suzie

    Dear Suzie,

    I told my boys to make theirs 1-2 pages long, typed and double spaced.

    HTH!

    Hi there,
    When we suggest a "mini-report," we're thinking more along the lines of a mini-presentation. The student could hold up a picture and give a short oral report. Or, as Susan says, it can be a 1-page report. It could also be something like a mini-poster with an oral explanation. There are lots of options...it's pretty open-ended.

    Actually, one son gave an oral report (about 1.5 pages typed) and the other made a game that we all played. We had a lot of fun and look forward to continuing the process next week.

    Thanks for the input! I know that I can just assign something but the feedback from others is really helpful! Blessings, Suzie

    Hello! We just got done with doing two weeks of mini-reports in our on-line co-op for R students. Great fun for all of us! Each of our students picked a topic from each week's list and did a total of two reports each. Most of the kids did power point presentations which we shared in our virtual classroom. It was wonderful for me as the discussion leader, since the kids did most of the work for those weeks! Plus, they got to have the fun of learning from each other. My sons' written reports turned out to be about 1 and 1/2 pages each, single spaced. Enjoy!
    Blessings,
    April
