In the spirit of movie trailers, book trailers allow you to create video advertisements to entice new readers. Not only does this project ensure that you have a firm grasp on the story’s plot, setting, theme and main characters, it also provides an opportunity to address persuasive writing as well as digital literacy concepts like copyright and publishing. 1:30
Leveraging the recording capabilities of most computers and mobile devices, students could explore the role of tone and sound by creating podcasts in the fashion of old-school radio shows. Using Garageband or any other sound recorder, you can retell portions of stories, complete with background music and sound effects, to demonstrate their understanding of tone, setting and theme, as well as practice your reading fluency. 2:00
