Talking about books with peers is one of the most powerful ways to aid students in developing positive attitudes about reading!! Book talks allow students to read and share great literature with one another through orally presenting self-selected, high interest books! Not only do you create a community of readers through the use of book talk presentations, but this assignment is also a fantastic tool for building confidence and helping students break down their fears of speaking in front of a group!
This is a Common Core aligned resource that was designed with the idea of fostering a love for reading and building on comprehension! Enjoy!
