Connect with Book Trailers

Book TrailerTeachers are always looking for ways to interest and motovate students to read more. We know that students all to often judge the interest level of a book simply by the title or cover art, and miss the chance of a really good read. Of course, adults are guily of judging a book by it’s cover as well, but are exempt from this conversation because we really do know better.

‍Book trailers are often mentioned in both education and literary circles around the web. Book trailers are kin to movie trailers. Book trailers are short videos previewing the plot and characters of a book and can have a great impact on motovating viewer interest. I can not think of a better way to connect todays kids with books.

A great place to start connecting kids  to book trailers is Book Trailers for Readers. The wiki site even has instructions on how to create your own classroom book trailers. If you don’t check out this Wiki site you are not doing yourself any favors.

    A great site….very motivating way to hook students into reading a new book. Another wonderful thinkg I noticed on this site was that they give the lexile level of the books and the AR Level. Thanks Mr. Bauer for sharing another awesome site!
