Tired of boring, long summary-like book talks? Get your kids excited to talk about their books with S P E E D T A L K S! Instead of listing character names and reading long passages from the book to hit a time limit, students have a list of items to share with the class and only ONE MINUTE to do so! Not only are these book talks engaging, but they're hilarious as well as students have planned out every essential word they hope to say!
This book talk activity ensures several things:
1. Every student gets a chance to share!
2. Students hear about dozens of books within one class period!
3. All words spoken are important & interesting!
4. Students get excited about giving a speech & reading new books!
This product is a one-page student handout that includes the speed talk requirements AND teacher rubric for the task. With a checklist rubric based on a ten-point score, the grade can easily be converted to your own chosen point amount.
