I am in love with the idea of using well-crafted book trailers to entice reluctant readers to read. I also love the idea of having my students create some of these. I think that if I can combine technology (screentime!), a compelling teaser to a book, and peer advocacy, I can convince at least some of my reluctant readers to pick up a book.
That said, I’m just going to be up front here and admit that I haven’t used these book trailers in my class yet. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a couple of years now, but I still haven’t figured out how I’ll incorporate these trailers into a lesson. So, if you have any ideas, I’m all ears! Please leave your ideas in the comments.
