Happy Friday, all! This is my second post today. Busy, busy. First, a bit of business. Thus far, I have been trying to distinguish craft-and-review blog entries from book-biz entries by title (The Business of Children's Books plus subhead and a #). I am giving up as the numbering and subhead thing is just becoming a project of its own. I'll try to keep the titles somewhat helpful and will add labels.
So, returning to the READING GUIDES (and please note that the HEADING TO NYC blog entry actually contains the introductory material for this topic)...
Here are a FOUR TIPS for writing DISCUSSION QUESTIONS.
Note that, depending on the genre (picturebook...MG...YA and everything in between), the balance between different types of questions changes. Regardless, I encourage you to consider a variety of angles as you develop your question list. Hopefully, this will give many types of readers opportunities to connect with the book.
