Creating Book Trailers to Persuade Our Peers (Day 2 of 4)

Unit 19: Creating Book Trailers in iMovie for Choice Reads
Lesson 2 of 5

Objective: SWBAT produce a clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience by creating a book trailer for their independent reading books.

Big Idea: The book trailer each student creates will show the class how much they enjoyed the book, and maybe it will encourage them to read the book as well.
