I am always searching for new ways to increase the amount of time students are actively learning. So this year, instead of showing book trailers or giving book talks to introduce the new Nutmeg Nominees, I decided to try book browsing. Each student gets a copy of one of the books. They have four minutes to look at the title and front cover, read the summary, and read inside they book. They decide if they would or would not like to read the book and give specific reasons why. Then, they pass the book to their neighbor and do the same thing for a new book. Students were engaged during the activity and told me that they enjoyed learning about the books that way.
