Books Talks in iMovie


Each book talk should contain a short introduction, the reading of a passage from the book, and an explanation as to why you chose that passage.

The passage you choose can be one that you find particularly interesting, well written or a good representation of the book as a whole. The passage should take between 45 seconds and a minute to read.

The introduction of your book talk should explain a bit what the book is about and help to set the scene for anyone who listens to your talk.

The final section of your book talk should explain why you chose that passage.
