TEACHERS LIKE YOU SAID THIS...
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Rebecca F. says... "I loved your graphics and the fact that it was in a ready-to-use digital format. I actually revised it a bit for my own movie trailer planner assignment, and the students were engaged and responded well. I am looking forward to using it again this year, but this time in the way you originally intended. Great product! "
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Meggan B. says, "My students enjoyed this activity. I used it after we read the book and watched the movie. I usually do a writing review, but in this case, I wanted to try something different. The students were able to connect the book and the movie along with connecting it to their own world. "
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Kara L. says "Great as a culminating task in our visual literacy unit. The scaffolds were fun for students and easy to follow. Using it as a digital option would be even better, and will probably do that next year. Highly recommended."
