Trailer Thursday #182 (Scar Island by Dan Gemeinhart)

Scar Island by Dan Gemeinhart (Trailer by Reece)

*One of my goals this year to promote reading, books, and literacy was to expose my readers to the idea of "trailers".  

*The most recent "Breakfast with Books" book club selection was Scar Island by Dan Gemeinhart.  It was well-received by many of my readers and we had a great Skype session this past Monday.  

*I asked the "book clubbers" if they would create a book trailer to capture the essence of the story.  It always amazes me how you can take the same book and receive such a wide variety of trailers.

*Our goal is to create a book trailer a week that we can share with our classmates.  

*We are collecting all the trailers we make and putting them into our Schoology Site.

*Each student will have their own album where they can keep all of their trailers.  Then the other readers will be able to browse those trailers and find a new book to read.   

*As the year progresses we will learn what should be included, and not included, in the trailer to make them the best they can be.
