Language Arts Lesson - "Book Talks: No Prep Guide for Running Successful Book Talks"

Language Arts Lesson - "Book Talks:  A Guide to Running Successful Book Talks in Your Classroom"

By Mary Pat Mahoney

Grades 5 - 11

Book talks are a great way to generate enthusiasm for reading, and they allow students to share books in a way that traditional book reports cannot. Students enjoy creating a "buzz" about their favorite books and making digital presentations to enhance their talks. 

In this ready-to-go lesson, you can easily incorporate book talks into your ELA program and make them a regular classroom event. Monthly challenges help keep the talks interesting and exciting, and challenge all students to think creatively. If your students aren't ready to create digital presentations, you can use the "note card" instructions for a more traditional talk.

Book talks address standards in oral language, presentation skills, and multimedia formats.

This lesson includes everything you need to start book talks this week!
