Speed-Dating in the Library!! (With a Book!!) πŸ™‚

Eighth grade ELA classes had the opportunity to be acquainted with a variety of engaging books. Each student spent 3 minutes with a book as nearly 21 books were rotated in a class block. Students were given a sampling of what each book had to offer as they explored story blurbs on the inside and backside of the cover. They were also instructed to read a few pages into the book to decide if the book was the right fit for them. At the end of the period, students logged into their online catalog account to create a personalized book list of titles that interested them, which they can access from anywhere at any time. The idea came from a blog written by a veteran ELA teacher.
