a.k.a. Speed Book Dating
Speed Booking How-to
We offer Speed Booking any time to all English classes and we tailor the event to meet the needs of each class.
Once we know class numbers, gender, and ability level, we put 12-15 books on each 4 seat table. We mix genres to give students a chance to sample something new. After a brief explanation of the process, we give them a paper that asks for a comment and rating, and then set the online timer (2 or 3 minutes). The students examine one book per interval.
If students need a refresh, rather than having the students move, we shift the books or add new ones to the tables as needed.
It’s been a big hit here for the last couple of years and we taught it at our state conference in 2012.
