TRY THIS TOMORROW: WHAT I’VE BEEN STREAMING
Scrolling Twitter one night, I saw a post shared from a bookstore titled “I want to get back into reading, I’ve been streaming”. The image, found here, matches readers with titles based on shows they have enjoyed. I often use conversation about television as a gateway to recommending books to students and this took it to a new level. Other sources have similar lists to promote books based on TV entertainment.
Penguin has a list of “What to Read Next Based on Your Fav Netflix Shows”.
Epic Reads has a list of “36 Books to Read After Binge-Watching ‘Never Have I Ever’”.
Teaspoon of Adventure has a list of “Book to Read After Your Latest Netflix Binge”.
- Have students come up with a list of popular TV shows and research titles that are similar.
- Have students pick one TV show and brainstorm similar titles they have read.
- Have students look at your classroom library and pair titles with TV shows.
- Have students match their current read with a TV show or movie.
