Begin discussing movie traiers and commercials. Discuss how the author (creator) uses the media to make you want to purchase/watch/do something. On www.schooltube.com we will watch some student created book trailers. We will discuss how the text, images, and musical score all go together to create a meaningful product.
2 Direct Instruction
3 Guided Practice
After students find all of the images or videos they will need, we will use EasyBib to correctly site these sources. Students will then use a storyboard to fit their text and pictures together in a meaningful sequence.
4 Independent Practice
After all other parts are finished, students will login to Animoto to begin creating their book trailers. They will listen to music using the site or our Backtracks library to enhance to mood of the book through music. They will also work on sequencing the script and the images to best convey the meaning of the book.
After students have completed all parts of the book trailer project, we will pubish them to our Schooltube account and share them with our classmates. Students could also use these tools to give reports in different subject areas or use different literary subjects.
