Book Talks 2017-2018: Gallo

These are the books we pitched this year. We usually consult with teachers about student interests, reading abilities, and prior successes. We also peek at class lists to see if we can find curricular alignment with social studies or science.

March 1, 2018 9th grade booktalk

We wanted to get these 9th gradersreading. This was not a group reading assignment, yet many chose to read the same book as their friends. We included graphic novels, nonfiction, and memoirs along with fiction options. There was a lot of enthusiasm for The Hate U Give, Templar (graphic novel), and Brian Selznick's books.

March 2, 2018 11th grade booktalks

In preparation for a short story unit, Aaron wanted students to read books about issues they might face. We brainstormed a list of topics and selected titles featuring those themes. Students would then WRITE short stories focusing on the themes they explored through their independent reading.
