Overview

Would you like your elementary students to move beyond the standard book report? Book trailers can be a great way for students to demonstrate their understanding of a book. This webinar will cover the necessary organization, planning, and storyboarding, as well as some of the easier Web tools that can be used to create a book trailer. Angie Oliverson will demonstrate how to use one of these tools, Photostory, to create a book trailer and will share examples of both student and teacher-created work.

Always good to have someone willing to share the list of tools that can be used. Though I woudn't choose photostory for MY book trailer, watching you compose a story there at least helps guide my thinking.

AWESOME Angie! Just watched your presentation. Great information/resources. I am planning on having my students make book trailers in Summer School. I am excited to start this project! I am hoping the book trailers will inspire my kiddos to read!
