Project includes several worksheets, guidelines, and a presentation on digital book trailers. It is very concise and detailed in both expectations and creativity.
Everything in the package is included in both PDF and Word format, and the power point is also enabled for editing.
The following is included in this project/package:
1. Book Talk Form
2. Storyboard Outline
i.9 categories at 5 points apiece allows for the grading to be 45 points for actual project.
ii. Presentation, Content/Plot, Images, Audio, Video Editing, Target Audience, Interest Level, Length, and Saved/Played correctly.
i. Outline goes directly with storyboard power point. Students are able to brainstorm which images they might search, and write text on the line below each box.
c. Project Guidelines
3. Storyboard PowerPoint
• Outlines entire project & expectations.
4. Peer Review Worksheet
• 15 responses required; holds students accountable for their peers’ presentations.
Note: This project is revolved around Windows Movie Maker (a free downloadable program). It also works well with iMovie.
For my 9th and 10th grade classes, this project culminated their independent reading work. It took 1 day for outlining the book, 1 day to storyboard, 3 days in the computer lab, and 1-2 days to present (pending on how many students you have and how long your class periods are).
