Reflection: Student Ownership Convince Me to Read It: Book Talks on Outside Reading Novels - Section 3: Book Talk


I am so glad that I gave everyone a chance to talk about their choice read. It gave me an overview of the types of books they enjoy and an some ideas as to how to help them through this process. As they were discussing the plot of the book, I was thinking about possible themes, knowing that this will be the most difficult piece. 

The activity wasn't only good for me.. It was a great activity because the class really got into it. They liked hearing from each other. Several students started lists of books they would like to read, based upon the recommendations of their peers; they would even stop the student presenting to ask for author and precise title. All but one student really enjoyed the book he or she chose.
