Teaching Students to Write Book Reviews
Contemporary Rural Social Work Journal
This teaching note argues that one value associated with preparing book reviews for publication is the increased capacity to develop this skill in undergraduate and MSW-level social work students. A book review assignment is presented that has been effective in developing student authors. After graduation, student authors (N = 21) agreed that acceptance for publication improved their self-confidence, increased attention to their studies, and enhanced their practice.
