BOOK REVIEW ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS For this assignment, you will write a 5-page book review in current APA format that focuses on the required course textbook, Design for How People Learn (2nd edition). You must summarize the premise of the book, take a stance for or against the key points made, and discuss implications for the field of education and instructional design. The paper must include at least 4 references to the assignment textbook, in addition to a minimum of 2 biblical references. Please use the following format in preparing your book review: 1. SUMMARY. Summarize what you have read, boiling the book down into 400–600 words (no more than 2 pages). Prove you comprehend the readings by writing a no-nonsense summary. The introduction is not a commentary or listing of topics but rather an objective summary. Summary here means “clear and concise.” This section must include a minimum of 2 citations of the text being reviewed in current APA format. 2. CONCRETE RESPONSE. Get vulnerable! In 250–300 words and no more than 1 page, relate a personal life experience that this book triggered in your memory. Relate your story in the first person, describing the action, and quoting exact words you remember hearing or saying. In the teaching style of Jesus, this is a do-it-yourself parable, case study, and/or confession. You will remember almost nothing you have read unless you make this critical, personal connection. 3. REFLECTION. This is the critical thinking part of the review. In 250–300 words and no more than 1 page, describe what questions pop up for you in response to what you have read. Keep a rough-note sheet at hand as you read. Outsmart the author by asking better questions than he/she raised in the book. Tell how the author could have made the book better or more appealing to those in your field of service. One way to begin this section is by stating what bothered you most about the book. This is not a place to provide an endorsement or affirmation of the book. This section must include a minimum of 2 citations of the text being reviewed in current APA format. 4. ACTION. So, what are you going to do about it? In 400–600 words (no less than 1 page and no more than 2 pages), provide 2 actions that describe what changes you are going to do or how the book’s ideas/concepts will be applied in your professional life as a result of your reading. Actions must be specific, measurable, and reveal a commitment to time, certain people, identified steps, and evaluation plans. 5. Please provide an APA-style title page, citations, and reference page. These do not count towards the 5-page minimum requirement.
