Book Trailers and the Common Core

A book trailer is a video advertisement for a book that uses text, images, music, movie clips, and/or voice recordings to promote and encourage reading. You can find MANY book trailers on YouTube today created by students. I use student created book trailers along with “official” book trailers created by publishing companies in our weekly “Book Hooks” for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders prior to checking out.  I feel they are a great way to get readers excited about specific titles and authors.

Here is a PDF that shows how to make a book trailer. Check out the infographic below to see how many real-world skills and standards are met with this one digital media project:
