Song – Little Pink Houses by John Cougar Mellencamp Book talk 15% (rubric on Blackboard) You will present a book talk on four (4) books and one song related to your specialization (what you plan to teach). Please include one young adolescent chapter book, one picture book that is fiction, one picture book that is non-fiction, one poem, and one song. All materials chosen should be for the students, not for teachers! Plan to limit your presentation to 15 minutes. It will be hard to do; you will be excited about your books! You may also add any special effects; one student shrouded us in a fog of dry ice as she shared a selection of mysteries… Format for Book Talks – 1. Have the song playing as you begin your talk. You may use it in any way that will enhance your presentation. Please provide us with the lyrics. Bring the books with you.
