What is a book talk?
Students wishing to earn literacy cords to be worn at graduation, must complete one book talk each year with their advisory teacher. The format of the book talk may vary, but most book talks will take one of two forms:
- The student shares their book in a verbal format to the rest of their advisory group.
- The student engages in a discussion about the book with their advisor.
Either format may include specific questions posed by the advisor to help students articulate characters, plot, connections or other aspects of the reading experience.
