This Choosing a Book That Interests Me: Seeking the Superhero Reader in Me lesson plan also includes:

Selecting a "power book" and engaging in a structured class discussion are the learning targets for this fourth lesson in a larger unit. It is designed as a beginning of the year unit for establishing norms and routines in the classroom. The plan begins with third graders exploring the classroom library and related vocabulary. After all learners have chosen books a transition is made to a demonstration of the fishbowl strategy; in which older students, adult volunteers, or well-respected peers model strong speaking and listening skills. In the end, the class breaks in to small groups of four to five and uses established classroom norms to talk about why they chose their books. This plan is a well-structured and offers an academic way to approach introducing learners to their classroom library.
