  2. Books go to the Movies: Using MovieMaker to create Book Trailers Going Digital in the K-12 Classroom An Advancing Literacy Workshop

  3. Introductions • Welcome! We’re so glad you could join us. • Erin McNaughton, ELA middle school teacher at Mac Williams Middle School in Fayetteville, NC and MEd student at UNCC. • Linda Rucker, ELA middle school teacher at Hickory Ridge Middle School in Harrisburg, NC and MEd student at UNCC.

  4. Agenda Welcome to Books go to the Movies: Using Moviemaker to Create Book Trailers. Here’s what we are covering in this presentation: • Examples of Book Trailers • Getting Started – Determine your focus • Data Gathering (images, video, and music) • Using Moviemaker to create a book trailer • Questions & Answers

  5. A few good book trailers… • The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes • The Juvie Three by Gordon Korman

  6. Step 1…Let’s get started • First you need to determine what your focus is. • What book are you creating this book trailer for? • What is the central idea or theme you want to convey to your audience?

  7. Step 1…continued • What images, sounds or words come to mind when you think about this book? • Jot down your thoughts and answers to these questions and anything else you feel may be useful to helping you focus your ideas.

  8. Step 2 – Data Gathering There are a couple of ways to help you save all that you find and here is what we suggest: • 1) Open a Word document and copy and paste your links there (for photos, videos, etc.) and then type the text you want to use for each.

  9. Data Gathering ..continued. • 2) Create a folder in Windows Explorer under "My Documents“. You can save your images, music and text in any format in that folder.

  10. Keep track of those sources  • **As you find a photo, video or music you want to save it to your folder and then copy/paste the website to the word document with a short description. Remember this is just a starting point, once you start your movie you will probably think of more things to add, just save and copy/paste as you have been so you have a record of where you got your data.***

  11. TEXT • You will want to plan out any text that you want to use in your book trailer. This can be a rough draft for now as you can change it as you go. Just jot down some ideas, so you have a general idea. • Think of this as captions you would put under a photograph.

  12. Photos • There are a number of places to get photos, but if you use Google you will want to site your sources, otherwise the sites below are “Royalty Free”. • You can type "Royalty Free Photos" into your search engine. • Microsoft office images -

  13. Photos…continued • Search Clipart in an open Word Document • Photobucket - • USE YOUR OWN! You can take your own photos or use ones you already have!

  14. Music The same rule applies for music as for photos! • - Find Sounds - search for specific sounds • - Partner in Rhyme - Free Royalty Free Music Loops and Music Tracks • - Brainy Betty - Free Sound Clips and Music for Presentations

  15. Videos • Yep...same rule applies here:-) • Create your own videos! • Type "Royalty Free Videos" into your search engine • Once you have gathered your photos, text, and music into one place you are ready for Step 3!

  16. Step 3 – Let’s Make a Movie • You’ve planned! You’ve searched for images and music! You have captions! YOU ARE READY to make a movie! •

  17. Next Steps • That discussion is at the Teaching & Learning in the 21st Century Blog at: • Scroll down the page to find the discussion forum for this presentation titled: Books Go To the Movies: Using Moviemaker to Create Book Trailers • Information about this is included in the workshop packet we sent out in an email.
