What if we could teach students a language to speak and write in a meaningful way about the books they have just read? The impact would be an increase in free-reading and literacy learning. We have the ability to do both through teaching students to use vocabulary to describe books they have read and write book hooks, book reviews that emphasise the element of the book that "hooks" readers into reading the book.

This workshop would be relevant to primary teachers, EAL teachers, librarians, Language Acquisition or MYP Language and Literature teachers.

The outcomes of this AGIS Workshop would be:

● Teachers can describe the language of appeal
● Teachers can use the language of appeal to guide students in their free reading choices
●Teachers will learn several activities that allow their students to speak and write about books they have read
