A large game board or piece of cardboard
I found this image on flickr:
And I want to make it! But more importantly, I'd want my students to help make it. I could have each group find the "golden line" or best quote from the book for the description. They could vote on the books to determine placement on the board.
(I think the meaningful discussion would come from the analysis of quotes and determining the placement of the books. They could justify their thinking as a written response, stating why that book has earned that placement).
I just determined my end of the year bulletin board! Done!
Happy reading :)
