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

*My class has been lucky enough to be able to connect with Nora on several occasions this year.  We have had two Skype visits and she also visited us in person.

*I decided to read Nora's novel "Anything But Typical" after her visit.  I normally read more recent books, but knew this was such a powerful novel that it had to be shared with my fourth graders.

*Each student created a trailer to capture the "essence" of the story either alone or with a partner.  

*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.

Here are Some Other Trailers that Promote this Novel...
