Product Description
Book Talks are designed for small group reading instruction. The teacher's manual includes:

- Tips for determining reading groups, for guiding the discussions, and for maximizing the impact the group has on the whole class. Books Talks are student-directed with the goal being to improve reading interest and ability by encouraging student participation and ownership in the process.
- Questions, quotes, and discussion starters to guide students as they learn to engage in the reading process.
- Final assessment suggestions.

"The Sign of the Beaver" is a historical fiction novel set in the northeastern United States during the 1700s. The book explores the relationship that develops between two boys, one a Native American youth and the other a white settler, as they are "forced" to interact with one another. For more information on why we chose this novel for a book talk, please read our blog post at http://24-caratclassroom.com/sign-of-the-beaver.

In addition to being an excellent choice for small group instruction, "The Sign of the Beaver" also works well for whole class instruction and as an American History Social Studies enrichment assignment. While the Book Talk is specifically designed for use with The Integrated Reading & Writing Studio, it is also effective in literature circles / balanced literacy programs.
