This morning, a local YA librarian came to my classes and did a series of booktalks. How much fun is it!?! My 9th graders enjoyed themselves (most of them, at least) and they saw how to actually talk about the books with enthusiasm. We've been working on oral book reports all year, and they don't get any better. Grr. The best part was that the librarian brought books to give away, and brought 2 per student! It was a great experience. It was also great to get another experience seeing someone talk about stories (even plot synopses)with an audience. It was a fun afternoon.
