So what is a Booktalk?<br />Booktalks are conversations about stories.<br />
You & your students will use story sequence maps to organize story events for booktalks that you will create using slides & audio.<br />
Why?<br />Booktalks enable students to relate story events in sequence, to perceive structure in literature, and increase comprehension of the literature.<br />
First have the students select and read books.<br />
Students fill out the story sequence papers identifying the beginning, middle, and end of the story. (You may use any story sequence chart you like)<br />
Students locate three pictures that portray the story sequence. They may create their own pictures at Sumo Paint, Dabbleboard, or Sketch & Paint, scan their own pictures if you have a scanner, or find pictures online at Pics4Learning<br />They may print ONE photo here at BCA<br />
Save pictures to computer's desktop folder which you create for this project. This is an easy to locate folder for all project items at your fingertips. To create a folder click on the desktop, click New, click Folder. If you don't like the name of the folder, click rename.<br />
Upload pictures in slideshow program. I am demonstrating Kizoa here. Type in the story sequence from the story sequence paper. Click done. Copy embed code.<br />
