Lesson Plan Details
Duration: 
2 weeks
Objective: 
Students will create a video preview of a book's story elements that they have read.
Resources: 
student laptops, Kidspiration software, Scanner, Photostory software,
Preparation: 

Prior to instruction, the teacher needs to download movie trailers to show students.

I suggest you use Charlotte's Web with Dakota Fanning.  Watch trailer with and without audio and listen to trailer without visual.

Instruction: 

In this lesson, the teacher will have students preview a movie trailer, read a book, and make a book trailer for their book.    Students will complete a story board on kidspiration before they begin adding parts to their Photostory.

Assessment: 

Students will demonstrate that they can restate all elements of a story using a story map (complete episode - see attached).
