Make a BookTok!

  • Have you read a book that you'd recommend to others? Do you also like to make short videos? Then you may want to create a BookTok!

    BookToks are basically the same as traditional book talks, but are produced in a digital format so they can be shared online. They function like 30-60 second video advertisements for books. Students and staff members are invited to use a video production platform or app to create short videos and submit them to Miss Mahar ( for posting on this site. 'Tok' videos can be simple or complex... just make sure you submit your best work (proofed for grammar and spelling)! Students who need instruction for creating videos are invited to approach their English teachers or Miss Mahar for help. 

    Check out the links below for some great examples of student and staff BookToks!
