How can book talks from The Reading Workshop improve. Here is a list of ideas that might make them better.

  1. Give interesting details from the book
  2. Tell enough so the reader understands
  3. But don't tell too much
  4. Don't give away the ending
  5. Make the viewer curious to see how the book ends
  6. Talk slowly
  7. Share a sentence or two from the book
  8. Speak more clearly
  9. Show expression with your face and your voice
  10. Look at the camera
  11. Background should be plain
  12. When you ask a question PAUSE
  13. The bigger the question, the longer the pause
