The Sorcerer of the North Trailer. Released for US market a few weeks ago.
I am working on my presentation about using book trailers with students as an alternative way to respond to their reading. I am also creating a wiki about all things to do with reading. This will be my second wiki and I hope to explore more visual options and create something useful for teachers to begin with.
Today I have finished/finalised a rubric I created to assess book trailers created by students. It can be found on this wiki, which is, as I have said, is only in its infancy. I would be interested in any comments on the rubric. It is always interesting deciding what to put in and I think that I will end up with at least 2 rubrics to cover some alternative approaches to using the book trailer as a way of responding to a book, YA Literature or some reading. I think I will incorporate some group assessment as well to allow for a group approach to creating a book trailer, as it might also be used by literature circles groups.
