Sick of boring book reports, well then use technology like Microsoft's FREE Photo Story3 and the great handouts I created.
This is a set of three different handouts that I created for my middle students. I have broken the book trailer book report assignment in three different worksheets. Each worksheet has a list of directions. First the students are to read an age appropriate book. Next give the students adequate time, a month or so to get a good sense of the book. Next have the students complete the first book trailer worksheet. Next follow the second and third worksheet. I have included a rubric for this project. There are also ISTE technology standards and common core reading/language arts/literacy common core standards as well. Lastly I have created two video tutorials that I have uploaded on the internet that explain how to use Photo Story 3 and how to find effective images as well.
Photo Story 3 is a free program by Microsoft.
