PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Library Orientation establishes our year-long relationship with students and teachers, so we need to minimize information and give students a hands-on experience that fulfills the purpose of the visit. My interactive orientation with English/Language Arts classes focuses on reading and gives students plenty of time to find and check out their first Fiction book of the school year.

Returning students visit with ELA classes for a single-visit Library Orientation, with a stimulating activity that is different from their previous grade, that will rejuvenate their interest in visiting the library. As a middle school librarian, my highest grade level students are 8th graders: they don't need much review so can have a longer activity—one that isn't childish or boring, and provides guidance but not overt supervision. They are mature enough to use their phones, so using QR codes linked to online video book trailers is a great activity. Their first ELA project is a video book-talk, and teachers appreciate my “sneak peak” to get students excited to do their own.

This bundle includes the lesson plan, a short slide presentation with links to online resources (with notes for presenter), QR codes to book trailers to get you started, and a handout to guide students in making their own video booktrailer.
