PROMOTE YOUR BOOK AT OUR BOOK FAIR!
The best publicity for a book is when someone else suggests that you read it, namely someone your age. So this IR activity is designed to get the class talking about their books. Using persuasive techniques that you’ve learned, you are going to give a 2 - 3 minute oral presentation selling your book.
SPEECH MUST HAVES:


  • Note cards, numbered, write only on one side

  • Attention grabbing opening – HOOK (just like an essay)

  • Title, author of book

  • Short introduction to the plot

  • Description of at least one character (positive and/or negative traits, agree or disagree with actions, realistic or unrealistic, etc)

  • Reasons a person would enjoy this novel (“This book is exciting,” is not enough)

  • Type of person who would enjoy this novel

  • Lasting thought to entice the reader

  • Visual aid such as poster, power point image, glogster, prezi, iMovie, padlet

The visual is simply a visual. It cannot have any writing. (except for a short caption)

  • Good eye contact, appropriate volume and pace


WRITTEN MUST HAVES:
Complete handout.
SPEECH MAYBES:


  • Costumes- perhaps you want to be the author or a character

  • Sound effects, music, brief part of song

  • iMovie, Windows Movie Maker- You MUST have a way to share these in class. Do a test run in class before you spend lots of time creating a trailer.

  • Your own idea (needs teacher approval)


SPEECH NO-NO’s

Remember there are no words in your power point.

  • speaking quickly and softly

  • moving around

  • giving an introduction and then saying, “If you want to know the rest, go read the book.”

  • Saying, “This book has excitement” or “If you like suspense” as your only reasons for reading the book

  • Beginning with “Hi, I am _______ and I am going to tell you about ______.”

E-mail or share your video to your Literature Connections teacher.


*A note about “appropriate sounds and images”: First, they must be school-appropriate. Second, you must give credit for the sounds and images you use. All images and sounds you use must be attributed (include the name of the creator and the website from which you got it) in your closing credits.
Online Resources for creating a book trailer:

Naomi Bates, a high school librarian in Texas, has developed a great resource for creating book trailers. Go to http://www.nisdtx.org/Page/3590 and click on the PowerPoint presentation, “Creating Book Trailers.” Her web page also has some sample trailers.

Animoto is an online resource for creating videos using still photos and music. http://animoto.com

Check out the Ridgewood Public Library for some sample book trailers (some are created by publishing companies; some are created by teens). http://www.ridgewoodya.blogspot.com/search/label/book%20trailers
