Persuasive Book Reports

My teammate and I had our ELD classes create persuasive book reports and then they video taped them. It was such a great opportunity for these students to build their writing skills and practice their speaking skills through presentation. Afterward, they reflected on this learning activity. So many realized how important good grammar and clear voices are. They also commented on how it was fun to try to persuade people. For some unknown reason my 4 videos will not convert or upload correctly. I will keep trying, but for now check out half of them on Katie's class blog at
