Here is an awesome idea that I have found from the Barrow Media Center blog. It's a 30-second book talk challenge! I absolutely love how this blog post took a basic idea of making a book talk and turning it into a competition!
30-seconds might not sound like a lot of time, but it is perfect for getting students to plan out their ideas and share key points in a succinct and efficient way. I created the following video, taking this amazing idea and adding a few customizations to work for my school. Check this out!
