Over the past two weeks I have been encouraging my students to sell a book that they are currently reading or have finishing reading. I hope that the students start encouraging one another to read and that the emphasis moves from me hooking the kids into reading to the students leading the way.
When the students first started selling their books to each other it was still very much led by me. However, as the students have become more invested in the reading process they are now fully running these presenting times. I have been impressed with the level of questioning from the students listening as they really want to know if the book is a decent read and if they will try it next.
