Movie Unit: Book Trailer

I have created an English/Language Arts class assignment for students to make trailers advertising books they have read. This assignment is a creative way for students to engage with books as well as learn more about the video making process and marketing. Before assigning this project, I would show students several movie trailers and have them analyze formats as well as qualities that made them successful.

This project can be adjusted for different age levels (suggested: from middle school onward) as well as different levels (native speaker to non-native speakers of a language).

Below I have provided the hand out for the assignment in addition to a sample video that one might expect from students.
