Hook your students to read with Voki book hooks! In this lesson, students will create a Voki, a talking avatar, using the free, easy-to use tools at voki.com. The Voki book hooks tell listeners about exciting or interesting parts of a book without giving away the ending. Students will: analyze book jacket blurbs, write a script for a book hook that builds suspense and persuades others to read a book, create a book character at www.voki.com, and read with fluency and expression. This lesson includes teacher directions, student directions, examples of student created Vokis, and a rubric.
