Sometimes a reader finishes a book and doesn't know what to read next. Or sometimes they get stuck in one genre or one author.

Informal assessment performed as students present their book talk.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Parents should review the book that their student would like to share to ensure that it is appropriate for this age group and then after class, they should review the list that their student may have made from other books that were shared by other classmates.
I will provide a preparation packet for enrolled students to guide them in their book talk.
