I purchased a few rotating picture frames from Ikea to use on each table as the "menu" holder to display the genre found at that table. You have a restaurant-style setting for your classroom, perfect for your speed daters!If you are near an Ikea, the Tolsby picture frames comes in packs of 2 for just $.99. The room is set up, your books are carefully displayed, now what?And through their bulk book program, you can get a bulk order of one title for FREE! Right now you can get a carton of 24 copies or The Maze Runner for .40!
AS A PSYCHOLOGIST, I have always found the concept of speed dating fascinating.
I let my students self-select their first table, and then they moved as a group to the next table. Students have about five minutes to record notes about the genre at their table by looking at the "menu" cards and by perusing through the books and talking with their group members.
In that time, they need to select one book on the table to "date." Then, I start the timer.
