WHAT IS A BOOK TALK?

A book talk is a chance for you to share what you know about a book and recommend it to others. Sometimes this is done as a presentation in class, but it can also be done as a video, which is how we will do them this quarter.

You will sign up for a day to show your video to the class.  You must do ONE video book talk by January 25th.

Watch some example book talks below.

 

WHAT SHOULD MY BOOK TALK INCLUDE?:

__ Your voice

__ The title and author

__ Show the cover of the book

__ Tell us about the basic plot (but no need to spoil it!)

__ Tell us your favorite thing about the book

__ Tell us who might like to read the book

__ Tell us what other books it reminds you of

__ Give the book a rating out of 5 stars (5 meaning you really liked it)

__ The video should be 2-3 minutes long
