A book trailer is pretty much exactly what it sounds like - a cross between a movie trailer and a book talk/review. The goal is to capture the audience's attention through the use of images, voice-over and movies, while describing the book. The book trailer requires that students display an understanding of the book, are able to integrate graphics and video appropriately to support the tone, theme and content, can write a script for the voice-over that engages viewers, and are familiar with technology in combining these elements. This unit will help students: Select a book for independent reading; Identify important elements of digital storytelling; Make appropriate use of graphics and music, while respecting copyrighted sources; Apply those elements to the creation of a book trailer using Photostory software.
