What exactly is a book talk/book trailer anyway? I'm glad that you asked! What is a book talk's purpose? A good question! How do I go about creating one? Excellent probe! Below are two power points and a web link that share basic information about book talks and book trailers. Following these, is a Prezi (think Power Point only better) concerning book trailers as well as various examples of book trailers and digital book talks. We will discuss other ways, besides technology, of doing book talks during class.

Assignment Particulars:

You will create a book trailer (a short video to promoting a book). Once you complete your digital trailer, insert the link and upload your paper to the chart at the end of this page. The book trailer assignment sheet is located on the Assignments Page of the course wiki.

If you want to use Animoto as your source for the trailer, please see the Announcements page of the course wiki for a promo code
