Book speed dating ariadna gil viggo dating
The goal of the class was for students to find one book to check out.
We tried Book Speed-dating in the library About 20 students brought along a copy of their favourite book, and had a minute to tell the person opposite about it before swapping partners.
I also tried to select a balance of books with male/female protagonists and multicultural representation.
The first class had 10 students, so I had 3 bins of books (6-8 books per bin) plus 8 books that I booktalked.
