Book Trailers

Subject(s): ELA
 Grade Level: HS
Author(s): Mary McCarthy, Cyndi Burnstein  
Synopsis: In small collaborative groups, students will select a book for choice reading as a part of the 9th grade World Literature and Composition curriculum. Students will read, discuss, and write about the book together as a part of their ELA class activities. The students will also create a storyboard for a short video trailer to advertise their book to a wider student audience. The school librarian will provide instruction on how to use filming and editing technology. Completed trailers may be featured on the Student Television Station’s regular morning announcements, as well on promotional monitors in the school libraries, or the district cable network.
Driving Question: Can students effectively promote reading among their peers through video technology?
