If you do not understand some of these tasks, have no fear! Below are directions on how to complete some that you may not understand.
Make a Book Talk for Morning Announcements- A Book Talk is a one minute advertisement for a book. It gives an opinion of the book in question and a short summary, careful not to reveal any key plot ideas. Students can write a Book Talk to be shared during Morning Announcements, or even be the one to speak! All you have to do is follows the steps below.
- Write down what you want to say about the book
- Book title
- Short book summary
- Your opinion- Ex. "This is a great book!"
- Why you liked the book
- Show your Book Talk to Ms. A and have her schedule you in the morning announcements
- Get permission from your teacher to be late to class if you would like to read your Book Talk yourself
- Come to the secondary office on the second floor at 9:30 to read your Book Talk or listen as your Book Talk is read for the whole school to hear!
Make a Book Trailer- A book trailer is just like a movie trailer. Except, of course, it is about a book, not a movie. A book trailer uses pictures, videos, words, and music to portray an idea of what a book is about. The purpose is to try to entice others to read the book. You can follow the directions below on how you can make your own book trailer, and even find some examples!
- Create a plan for your trailer which should include
- Book title
- Short summary
- Plans of images, videos, music and words you would like to use
- Using iMovie or another software, make a video with pictures or videos related to the plot of the story that follows your plan. Feel free to add music as well!
- Send your Book Trailer to your Lang & Lit or ELA teacher (and the librarian as well!) so they can see your masterpiece!
Write a Book Review- A book review is where someone talks about what they thought about a book they read. It includes your opinion of the book and a very brief summary of what the book is about. To make a book review, follow the simple steps below.
- Choose any book you have read in the library
- Write the title, author, and genre of the book in one sentence
- Tell your opinion of the book in one sentence
- Write a brief summary of the book in two sentences
- Recommend (or do not recommend) your book in one sentence
- OPTIONAL: Include a drawing of the book or picture of the book cover
- Bring or email your book review to Ms. Abraham so she can put it on the shelf next to the book you reviewed
