Lending Library – Booktube Project

Watch the following booktubes.

As you can see a booktube is a review of a certain book.

Notice that first children mention the title and author of the book and then they carry out a task. Choose among one of these:

1. Describe the main characters. Then, think if you were a movie director which famous actor/actress you would choose to perform those roles if the book was turned into a movie. Give reasons.

2. Think of the ending of the story and change it in a radical way.

3. Look at the cover of the book and explain whether you believe it is a good cover or not. Draw a new one and expand on your choices.

4. Choose one of the secondary characters and retell the story from his/her point of view.

Some final tips before you record your booktube.

a. Read your book.
b. Choose the activity that you will be developing.
c. Write an outline of your booktube.
d. Practice your booktube in a loud voice, check that it is not too short or too long.
e. Have any visuals you might need to use at hand.

Mid Year Oral Exam – July 12th (Thursday)

As we told you today in class, here you will find the texts to read for your oral exam. Take your time, read and re-read the texts, look up those words that you do not know the meaning of and try to relate to what you read. Think about these questions:

Have you ever experienced fear? What were you afraid of? Are you still afraid of that thing or not any longer?

Can you relate to the characters in the different stories? How?

Check the rubric below to prepare for your exam.

You will not be evaluated on the use of images for this exam.
