1. BE ENTHUSIASTIC! IT’S CATCHING! Choose GREAT books that you LOVE!

– Use Reader-Response approach. (Louise Rosenblatt/Judith Langer)

– Small group discussion & prep. followed by whole class discussion and presentations. This allows for individual preparation before students are expected to speak in front of the whole class.

– Found poems. (See here)

– Oral book reports (30 sec’s – 1 minute max!)

– Literature circles (like book clubs!).

– Creative writing & read-alouds (“authors’ chair”)

– Students post cards with annotated bibliographical info on favourite supplementary books. (Create a “book wall”)

– LOTS of oral reading: teacher class around the class pairs groups

– Readers’ Theatre

– Jigsaws

– Literary Term posters

– Favourite picture books/poems/stories from childhood

– Personal Literary Anthology (See here)

– Reader-Writer Workshop (See here)
