I’ve been exposed to an amazing new project idea…book trailers. I know the idea isn’t new; teachers have been doing this type of project for years through posters, signs, cereal boxes, etc. But recently I saw a few really well done videos for books. A quick search on YouTube will return some well-done student projects as well.
- To introduce books…which is the real purpose of them anyway, but instead of me doing a book talk, some one else can do it. The addition of music and video will attract some of my students who don’t classify themselves as readers.
- As model projects. Can you imagine showing student made book trailers on the morning announcements? (note to self…send links to the super awesome media specialist at our school)
Some good examples:
