Product Description
Engaging students in a reading outside the classroom can be a difficult task on its own, but how can you check their comprehension of the novel without making it a daunting task for students, and for you as the grader? ENTER BOOK TRAILER PROJECT!

I gave the students eight weeks to read their novel and complete the planning sheet (outside of the class). They then had two full 83 minute blocks to put their presentation together.

The project itself has students identify a theme of the story by creating their own essential question that is posed at some point during their presentation. They are asked to include textual evidence with proper citations, have a hook to grab the reader's attention, introduce the climax/conflict of the story, and properly identify the protagonist and antagonist. They also have to correctly portray the tone of the story by carefully choosing music and leaving the class with a cliffhanger! The final product is a fun day filled with student interest in reading and intrigue into the story.
