Show up and Show off: Student-Generated Poster Talks

Unit 12: Reading Unbound: Using a Choice Text to Assess Yearlong Reading and to Explore Intertextual Connections
Lesson 2 of 7

Objective: SWBAT identify key elements of their independent novels (character, key scenes, ideas and themes) by creating a book poster and poster talk.

Big Idea: I get to ask my students follow-up questions about the books that they have been reading for several weeks! It's a great day because students can elaborate on their insights, and we can build meaning and understanding together.
