Book talks encourage reluctant readers to pick up a book because these books have been recommended by friends. Includes a handout with project description and resources to help create book talk video. Also, includes a grading rubric. I use this project as an outside reading project, but can be adapted to use within the classroom too. On the project due date, I ask that the student loan the book to the classroom library, so other students can check out the book. It is a great way to encourage reading in your classroom!
