  Book Talk – ESA 2019/2020 In an engaging, coherent and detailed manner, write an 800 - 1000 word account that demonstrates your understanding and engagement with the book you selected. Approach your wring task by responding to the following secons: o an overview of the enre book (what is the author aempng to achieve?) o a researched paragraph about the author o three themes that emerged from the book o (name and explain each with support from specic, page-referenced passages of the book o a reecon on the book’s impact on you o a nal statement explaining whether you would recommend this book to fellow readersThree labeled, paper versions are to be submied on November 22, 2019 . Your rst dra that shows your eding; the second dra which shows your external reviewer’s eding and then, the nal, polished copy. Book Talk Seminar Series Students will collaborate to design a 30 minute presentaon that is informatve , ineractve and  inerestng . Think about interconnecons between the assortment of Summer Reads books, what you have learned at PSEC so far, how the books complimented or contradicted one another, and perhaps themes that are embedded in the Life Sciences 11 curriculum. Collecvely, design your seminar to emulate a well-craed wring piece: a catchy tle, a provocave opening, the main body of your session (where all voices share insights from their individual books), and some memorable type of closing. For example, similar to the infamous CBC compeon known as “Canada Reads”, what is the single book that every Secondary School Science student should read and why? The seminar will close aer a 10-minute queson period from the audience and your classmates. Note > A handful of community/researcher guests, including a School District VIP, will be invited to aend. Their curiosity is deeply demonstrated by the books they read and the company they keep.
