The Importance of Book Talk
As professional educators, we know about the essential role that oral language plays in literacy development. Research about early literacy development clearly indicates that we are on the right track when we talk with our students about what they are reading, and encourage them to articulate what they are thinking about when they are reading.

Facilitate “book talks” with your students. The oral language involved in these discussions builds comprehension and gives students the opportunity to make connections that they may not have made on their own. The questions in the journal can be used to guide discussions about the books students are reading or listening to. The question range in complexity, from basic recall and retelling to higher order thinking skills.
