This is a digital storytelling project in which students create a trailer for a novel they have read. Student access to computers or iPads is required. Common Core aligned. I hang the posters around the room and give each student a sticky note. They write their name on the sticky note and move it as they complete each step. This gives me and the students a quick visual of where everyone is and who needs a little nudging or assistance in order to move on.
*Students have successfully completed this project using iMovie on laptops, Wevideo on Chromebooks and Reel Director on iPads.
**iMovie and Wevideo allow for voiceover recording, eliminating the need to use Garageband or iTunes.
***Google offers an app called WeVideo which works for this project as well. Students can create up to 5 minutes of free videos per month.
