Book Talks – Demonstrate then Delegate

Introduce Students to Books Old and New


Select three books that you can link to what interests your specific students. Create two-three slides for each book that include images from book covers or of a key event in the book.  On each slide write a probing question, a summary sentence, something specific about book that links to interests of your students OR a recent or upcoming theme/topic for your course, and end with a challenge: a reason to read. See samples links below.

Consider having students create their own book talk slides as an option for whole class book or independently read books.  If it’s a whole class book, perhaps group students based various literary devices used by the author.  See POSTER ASSIGNMENT adapted as slide presentation.
