So here is what I did: : Decide how you want the tables set up. I put 10-15 books on each table to represent that genre. I also set up a Power Point with the directions for the minutes. As they came in, they noticed the signs and books, and I could already tell they were picking their genres, even though I hadn't said a word about what we were doing. The romance section was particularly popular, even with the boys, so I added some "non-pink" romances to that table for the boys.
I just told them to sit anywhere and that we would be moving soon enough. I am excited to add a fun twist for when I do this lesson again.
If your choices also express interest in you, the organizer facilitates an exchange of information (email, numbers) and you can then choose to go on a “real” date if you’d like. Two sections of my Reading & Writing class were still discussing “Strikebreaker” by Issac Asimov.

I've wanted to try it out for awhile now, and I finally went for it last week.
I wanted to use a smaller "test" group before trying this with a class of 35 eighth graders, so I tried it with our resource reading classes first.
I went through the Power Point slides, introducing speed dating and how it relates to our book speed dating activity. After all the "dating" has finished, each student will choose a playing card from the middle of the tables.
We went over the directions thoroughly, and I made absolutely certain everyone knew what to do. Students who got a heart or a diamond (red card) get a "kiss" at the end of their date (Hershey's kiss). Many of the books got checked out, and the students were really engaged and enjoyed it.
