1 The House of the Scorpion Book Trailers

2 WHAT IS A BOOK TRAILER? It’s a multimedia presentation about a book. Publishers use them to advertise their latest publications (much the same as a movie trailer)- but WE can use them too!!!

3 Objective: Students will demonstrate their understanding of the novel, The House of the Scorpion, by creating an engaging multimedia book trailer utilizing Microsoft PowerPoint. The goal is to entice the viewer into wanting to read the novel.

4 WHAT INFORMATION SHOULD I INCLUDE???
CHARACTERS SETTING PLOT-BE CAREFUL NOT TO GIVE AWAY THE “CLIMAX” OF THE STORY TONE/MOOD THEME INTERESTING ASPECTS

5 Your trailer should also include…
A hook to pique your audience’s interest~ make us want to continue watching… Author and title of the book (pic—preferred) One or two quotes from the novel (should be interesting, funny, exciting) A “cliffhanger” element-a question to spark curiosity! Credits for images, sound effects, music, etc. (last slide of trailer)

6 PICTURES? MUSIC, VOICE??? You may preview other book trailers to get ideas such as.. booktrailersforreaders.com, authro.com, Youtube, booktrailersforall.com, etc. I have a file with a variety of music to choose from –OR- choose your own “SCHOOL APPROPRIATE” song. Ms. Clark will be available Mon.-Wed. if you are interested in adding narration.

7 NOW LET’S VIEW SOME TRAILERS!!!
Post-its!!! Write down any Positive Comments on the Pink post-its. Write down any Constructive Criticisms on the Yellow post-its. THE GOAL IS TO IDENTIFY ASPECTS THAT WORK AND TO TRY TO EXEMPLIFY THIS IN YOUR TRAILER!

10 Comments??? Do not underestimate the power of minor details! *Make sure your text size, font, and contrast are easy to read. *Speed information (images, text, transitions, music, sound effects) are paced appropriately. *Content is the MOST important! The bells and whistles are secondary!
