Book Talks
Book talks are a way for students to choose a book within a genre and share it with the class.  Students will prepare a 3-5 minute oral presentation on the book, including a short plot summary, character explanation, and recommendation, with evidence from the book!  In addition, 6th graders will create a visual presentation from one of the many book talk menu choices and compose a short writing piece.  This is an opportunity for students to show great effort and creativity, and to practice speaking in front of a group!

The 3rd trimester project is open to any genre.  Please refer to the schedule under the Book Talk Info tab.
