									                            Book Talk
       What is your book about? The class wants to know what you are
reading and now is your chance to tell them. You will do a 4-6 minute talk
to the class. This may seem like a long time, but you will have so much to
talk about that the time will fly by. You will need to talk about the
following parts of your novel:
       I)     Title
                     i)   discuss the title, author, illustrator, publisher and
                          copyright date
       II)    Characters
                     i)   talk about the main character, and supporting
                          characters
                     ii)  chat about their appearance, role in the book, and
                          good/bad qualities
       III) Plot
                     i)   discuss the main ideas of your book, starting at the
                          beginning until almost the end
                     ii)  DO NOT tell the ending of the book
       IV) Personal Reflection and Recommendation

                     ii)  discuss what you do not like about this book
                     iii) would you recommend this book and why
       V)     Favourite Part
