This lesson is adapted from Common Sense Media. For the full plan, go here.

Objective: Student will present a brief (1 minute 30 seconds or less-Flipgrid limitation) book talk, to “sell” a book to her peers.

Teacher goes over what we are doing, why we are doing it, and how we are doing it. Overview of book talks and why they are so important to building our identities as readers and contributing to our reading community.

Introduce Flipgrid. (CLASS GRID CODE)

Students must have time to review the grid to see what their peers are reading and recommending. Dedicate a time for this and book plans in the week. This is how community thrives. (You might also review a couple yourself and feature them, the “WOW—she’s actually paying attention” factor matters!)
