The full discussion/lesson plans took place over a series of three posts. You can find them here:
Introduction and Sample Book Trailers
Choose a Book and Plan Your Book Trailer
Film, Edit and Share Your Book Trailer
More Examples of Book Trailers Made by Students
I look forward to receiving more samples of student work inspired by this project and/or hearing about how you incorporated this project into your own learning environment.
Dec 6, 2013 Update: I just read this great article in School Library Journal about a school that held a student film festival as a way to raise money for technology at their school. When I read the article I thought it would be a great idea for a culminating event for schools/students doing other film-related projects, such as Book Trailers!
Let me know if you coordinate something like this at your school involving any book trailers for my books (re: I'd love to be involved in some way).
