This time, I ditched the powerpoint method of book talking and instead used Prezi (on the recommendation of Jackie). It was a lot of fun to put together and I think the teens will appreciate something a little more interactive. My only complaints about this method are that I can't link the video to the image, and I couldn't grab a good screen shot for a handout. The first I remedied by creating a playlist on YouTube and the second I decided to forgo completely. I can save the paper and direct the teens to our website, where I've posted the presentation, and my short-term plans for the teen services department is a book list of all the titles I've talked this year.
I've got a huge number of books this time, since I am going to continue the new method of talking different books to different classes. The fun part has been having the kids see a cover and beg me to talk about it, even if I planned to skip it.
