This project is designed to allow students to "sell" each other on books. The students give a 1-2 minute talk on the book that encourages others to read the book. The project is graded on the quality of the information given about the book, creativity, and the inclusion of a hook or connection and cliffhanger. I require my students to give 2 of these talks every quarter. It has greatly increased my students' motivation to read and the variety of books they are reading for enjoyment!
