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.

Thank you!
I appreciate the suggestions for what makes a great Book Trailer. Hook the audience is always fun. A short summary without giving away the ending. The question of why would someone want to read the book is a great question. A closing remark is essential. Nice presentation, I will use it soon.
