Coming Soon: Book Club Commercials

We have completed our book club books and the verdicts are in...we loved them!  The biggest complaint from this round of book clubs was that "the books were so good, it was hard not to read ahead!"  That's one complaint I am happy to hear!  

Now, we are going to share our enthusiasm for our books with everyone!  Today we began planning our "Book Commercials."  Students are deciding what will engage the audience and motivate them to read their book club book.  As the planning commenced, students could be heard squealing with excitement for their planned commercial.  Props or no props?  Quotes from the book?  Cliffhanger statements?  Foreshadowing?  What techniques will the students use to persuade the audience?!?  Check back in the near future to view our commercials and learn about some awesome books!
