I used this method for many years across a school community. The children became exceptional readers who were very articulate about the texts they read. Many books never returned to the shelves, except for the summer holidays, but were passed from hand to hand, borrowing sessions after borrowing session. The students really responded to the peer promotion of literature. It was fun and exciting.
21st Century Technology can easily be used here - Book Trailers / Digital posters to promote texts and reference sites.
Tailor the activities to the age of the students.
Once the program was running well and the students were familiar with the process, I was able to sit back and enjoy the sessions and marvel at the children's development.
