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
