YALSA Book TalksHeather_002.jpg

Presented by Heather Gruenthal, Teacher Librarian in the Anaheim Union High School District, serving Western High School and Orangeview Junior High School.

Heather has served on the ALA selection committee Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers 2011- 2012, and is currently serving on Great Graphic Novels 2013. Heather has also published articles for CSLA Journal, Knowledge Quest (the Journal of American Association of School Librarians), and YALS (the journal for the Young Adult Library Services Association).

Each year, the American Library Association puts out their "Best of the Best" lists including: Best Fiction for Young Adults, Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers, Great Graphic Novels, Popular Paperbacks, as well as their awards lists such as the Newbery, Printz, and the Morris awards. This presentation will demonstrate some ways to use these lists in your library programming.

Quick Picks Top 10


Amazing Audiobooks
Play an Amazing Audio Book during SSR one day a week. Here's a link to Neil Gaiman reading The Graveyard Book, a Newbery Medal, Carnegie Medal, and Hugo Award winning book:

If you can get your hands on it, a 2012 top 10 Amazing Audio Book selection, by Libba Bray, read by Libba Bray and produced by Scholastic Audio in 2011 is FANTASTIC!
When I booktalk it, I say, "When boys get stranded on a deserted island as in Lord of the Flies, they kill each other, but when girls get stranded on a deserted island, they save the world!" Libba Bray is hilarious reading her own novel. There's a lot of good discussion points in this one regarding the commercialization of the world by "The Company."

Slide12.JPG

Find more comics from Unshelved http://www.unshelved.com/ and use as shelftalkers (see below)




Banned Books!
Many of the Quick Picks titles are controversial and get challenged or banned. Do a challenged books booktalk (presentation created by Joy Millam) during Banned Books Week featuring reasons for challenges. See the AUHSD wiki's section on Banned Books Week for more ideas.

Blind Date:
Slide14.JPG
I explain to the students that a "blind date" is a date between two people who have not previously met. Usually you will get set up by a friend who knows the person. For this activity I had students pick up their favorite book they read that year to "set up" a friend with. For 3-5 minutes they try to convince their friend to "check out" their suggestion. Then they switch and their friend tries to set them up with their favorite. My form also includes some reader's advisory questions I use to find out what kind of books the students are interested in to bring to the next class visit. Here are copies of the forms I use:



"Don't Judge a book by it's cover"
From Christina Vander Griend on YALSA-BK
We also have a lot of titles with outdated coverart so I covered a bunch of them in brown paper and just wrote key words on them ("Mystery!" "Romance!" "High School Drama!") and set them out on a display that said "Don't judge a book by it's cover." Then, they were allowed to unwrap it after to see if the cover matched up to what they thought it would. Obviously, they could figure out the title from the title page inside but they got a kick out of the cheesy art and it went great. Lots of the kids who tried those books are less picky about what books they'll read now because they're not as put off by bad covers. I think other libraries have done this and called it "Blind Date with a Book" or something similar. A little labor-intensive (I had students do the book wrapping) but very fun.

Last Chance Book Display Titles:
Undiscovered Gems
Get them Before they're gone
Hidden Treasures
Read What You're Missing

Another Blind Date Activity from Teen Librarian's Toolbox:

Book Bundles: "Don't Get Dumber in the Summer"
Allow trusted students to check out books during the summer. Group them by common themes you can gather from the Popular Paperbacks list, or similar themes within the other book lists. For ideas, see the bundles creator site at the County of Broomfield Library

Book of the Moment
Take advantage of the "impulse buy" and post very popular books right at the circulation desk.
Slide19.JPG

Book Pass
Bring a large cart of books to a classroom. Show the cover of each book and give the students a one sentence "booktalk" (the Quick Picks List has short annotations that are good to use for this). Have the students pass the books around the room so they can see all the books. If they see one they like, they can keep it at their desk to check out and continue to pass books they are not interested in. This gives me a really good indication of the books that are not interesting. Books that get passed over after a few different classes, I take off the cart and replace with new books.
Slide20.JPG
Bulletin Boards
Make a bulletin board using Quick Picks book covers.
Slide21.JPG
Coffee Table
Put all your browsing books on a coffee table by the entrance that will attract reluctant readers.
Slide23.JPG
Displays
Make a display of the Quick Picks Top 10, or any Quick Picks your library has purchased. A display by the checkout counter also works like an "impulse buy."

Slide24.JPG

Famous First Lines
Quick Picks books need to engage the the first few pages. Open the book and start reading. Read from A Stolen Life: a Memoir by Jaycee Dugard: "Let me get one thing straight! My name is Jaycee Lee Dugard. I was kidnapped by a stranger at age eleven. For eighteen years I was kept in a backyard and not allowed to say my own name. What follows will be my personal story of how one fateful day in June of 1991 changed my life forever." (QP 2012 top 10). These lines are read in the Diane Sawyer interview available on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ci_22Oqhwtc&feature=related
Slide25.JPG

Genre Book Talk
Group the books on tables by genre with a booklist of more suggestions. You can use these from bookmarks and Handouts by Heather Gruenthal and Tommy Kovak. Challenge students to "find their genre." Booktalk one book from each genre. See the booktalks page for lesson plans and examples.



Slide26.JPG

Hot New Genre:
Slide27.JPG
(slide from Teen Librarian's Toolbox)

Hot or Not PowerPoint
I project book covers on the large screen from the Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers list. This activity was for 2012 nominations (not the final list):
http://www.slideshare.net/mrsgteach/hot-or-not-8117067

Students have cards that say Hot in red on side and Not in blue on the other side. Students show with their cards what they think is hot and what is not. This creates a lot of excitement for the books that everyone wants. You can end the activity with checking out the most popular books and creating a waiting list for the popular books, which also increases the demand.

here's the file for the Hot/Not cards.

Slide29.JPG

Judge a book by its cover
Quick Picks books are often chosen for their appealing covers. Place books face up on tables and let students browse books when you have classes come in. You may also use an overhead document camera to just show the book covers using the Hot or Not technique above.

Mock Printz
YALSA has a video on how to hold a Mock Printz: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEyFoAx6zv8

PowerPoint is not dead yet
I still booktalk using PowerPoint. It makes the covers of the books large enough for everyone to see. You can also print out the slides and post them around campus to advertise your books. Here is another amazing example from Teen Librarian's Toolbox

Rate This Book
Reward students with candy to write a review. Keep the reviews by the circulation desk for other students to browse. Paste the review with a picture of the book cover to catch the attention of browsers.


Slide35.JPG
Read Across America Week
Quick Picks often chooses picture books and browsing books. Use the theme, "You are Never Too Old to Read" and promote Read Across America Week at your school. See ideas at the AUHSD Read Across America wiki.

Funny_Food.jpg

Read Alikes
When the most popular books are checked out, have ready some read-alikes to substitute. Due to the popularity of the Hunger Games, many Dystopian titles are HOT right now. Consider convincing students to take Enclave by Anne Aguirre, Divergent by Veronica Roth or Matched by Ally Conde instead. Popular Paperbacks will also choose lists that correspond to popular genres. See the RIYL homepage for ideas.

Slide38.JPG



change the font for different looks. Tape to the front of a shoe box or insert to acrylic shelf - talker for display.

If you Like This.jpg
Read Aloud
Read a section of the book aloud. Whoogles is a good one from Quick Picks. Also, The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan is a romance told in dictionary format that was a 2012 Alex Award winner.

Slide39.JPG

Slide40.JPG
Examples:
celibacy, n. n/a
breach, n. I didn't want to know who he was or what you did, or that it didn't mean anything.
better, adj. and adv.
Will it ever get better?
It better.
Will it ever get better?

Read or Go to Jail

Jail_2011.jpg

Many of the Quick Picks books feature teens in a jail setting.
Read_or_Go_to_Jail.jpg
I also do a presentation in teachers classrooms during SSR, encouraging students to read and finish school. At the end, I check out books.


Slide42.JPG

Read the Movie
Many YA books are being made into movies. Show Book Trailers of books made into movies. Hunger Games and Twilight were both Quick Picks. See the Read the Movie page of this wiki for movie suggestions. Make it more of a movie experience by adding popcorn and red vines (Smart and Final has a big bag of popcorn and tub of red vines for $16.98). You can play the trailers directly from YouTube, or download them using YouTube Downloader to play from your flashdrive if your district blocks YouTube. Book trailers and Movie Trailers are made specifically for promotional purposes, so don't worry about copyright. They WANT you to promote their products.

Slide44.JPG

Shelf Talkers
Print off your power point slides from your booktalks and uses them as shelf talkers. Library supply stores have small ones that can attach to the bookshelf. You can also just print them on cardstock and tape it to the shelf, or print full size and place in acrylic frames. Teen Librarian's Toolbox has some great signs ready made. See also the Genre Project page for shelf talkers by genre.

Zombie Books are HOT right now! My favorite is Rot And Ruin.

Short and Quick Book Talks
One of the things that Quick Picks is know for is the short, snappy annotations. Show the book cover and read the annotation. This is a great idea if you want to expose students to a lot of books or if you've ran out of all your favorite book talking books.

Slide45.JPG

Favorite book from 2012 Quick Picks. Can't wait until the sequel comes out!!!

Special Shelf
Create a special shelf where students know they can go directly to find a great read. I keep mine on a cart so I can easily take it to classes. My Library Technician keeps a shelf in front of her desk with her special books.

Slide48.JPG

Speed Dating
Seat students at a table with a pile of new and interesting books laid out with covers facing up. Explain the concept of "speed dating" as a real activity where people go to meet someone they would like to spend more time with. They choose one book for their first date, and for 3 minutes, they "get to know" that book by looking at the cover, reading the jacket, and starting the first chapter. At the end of 3 minutes, students are asked to rate their book: 1) I think I'm in love 2) let's spend more time together 3) maybe and 4) not my type. I give them one minute to write the title and author of the book, and circle their rating. If they really like the book they previewed, I let them set it aside to check out when the activity is finished.

Slide49.JPG

Next, to add some fun to the activity, students pass the books in a clockwise circle (like hot potato) while I play silly love songs (better to pass the books than allow a class of 30+ students to run wild about the room). GLEE soundtracks are good for this, corny, but still contemporary enough for them to relate to. My favorites are Teenage Dream, Marry Me, Forget You, Silly Love Songs, and Baby. When the music stops (about 1 minute of music), they have a 2nd date with the book in their hands as the music stopped. I set the timer for another 3 minutes and they rate their 2nd book. I stress that this activity is to expose them to books they might not otherwise pick up. Repeat until the students rate 5 books. After the activity I allow them to check out books. If there is extra time, I do a pair-share, where they tell the friend sitting next to them which book they were most interested in. Here's the form I use:



Idea adapted from: Marcia Kochel, Olson Middle School and Mary Childs, Valley View Middle School, Bloomington, ISD 271

Summer Series
Quick Picks has compiled a list of series nominated over the years. Allow students a longer check out period or encourage students to read a series over the break.
Simone Elkeles Perfect Chemistry Series has been in the Quick Picks top 10 3 years in a row, once for each title in the series.

Teen Read Week
Do a booktalk in coordination with YALSA's Teen Read Week. For Teen Read Resources and Ideas, see the AUHSD Teen Read Week Wiki.

Teen Issues Booktalk
Gather all the issues books you can find. On a post-it, write in bold the ISSUE that is being dealt with, i.e., Teen Pregnancy, Rape, Frenemies, Divorce, drugs, gangs, abuse, etc. Use the book pass technique to expose students to many books. This is good to use when all your favorite booktalking books are checked out. The Bluford High, Urban Underground, Orca Soundings, and Surviving Southside series are good for this activity.
