  • 12. Survey of booktalkers: suggestions Continue to recommend new books that might be of interest to CMS residents. umm, make me less nervous? Unless you have a magic wand that erases stage fright, I think they are good as is. The time commitment is definitely substantial, so it would have been nice to get more off-desk time to work on my book talks, but thats probably not possible. Have booktalkers complete a short report following each visit that gets shared with other booktalkers so that we get to share experiences and best practices, as well as titles/authors they are really interested in.
  • 13. Survey of booktalkers: suggestions I would like to see the previously talked books include the blurbs on the sheets handed to students. This would help me make better selections. I would also like to see the time between when a book was talked and when it is talked again shortened -- maybe 4 months? This is such a great program--I hope that it continues despite lower numbers of students at the school. I cant think of anything to improve the experience other than keep it going! Have boys and girls separate.
  • 14. Survey of booktalkers: suggestions Scheduling the visits can be complicated--we have had to reschedule multiple times. Making the CHs school calendar available to booktalkers would help Hard to say, given the changes that have taken place there. Making sure that there is a permanent teacher present, who knows the drill and is participating, is critical. My visit this year would have been a complete disaster had the teachers not been fully present. My visit a few years ago did not fare so well--the teacher was "present" but not fully engaged. Cant think of anything. Its pretty darned good as is!

  • 17. Survey of CHS residentsWhat do you like MOST about the booktalks you have seen? the people make the book sound good Every time they come they have a different book and there are such a wide variety that i absolutely love the way they described the books they help me understand what the book is about they talk about all the books i was interested
  • 18. Survey of CHS residentsWhat do you like LEAST about the booktalks you have seen? nothing at all really. Just the residents interrupting the speakers. that you can’t get them the same day half the books dont look good its not short and sweet by the point how long they are when it ends
