Creating Book Trailers

Creating Book Trailers | teaching reading & writing | Scoop.it

Sometimes it's the last minute ideas that work the best! I had a teacher ask me to present something about creating book trailers to his students. I threw this Slides presentation together, added some sample Powtoons I'd made last week, and they loved it.

Great way to promote character trait "creative" as a conclusion to reading the book.

Motivation: The Overlooked Sixth Component of Reading

Motivation: The Overlooked Sixth Component of Reading | teaching reading & writing | Scoop.it

Learners are motivated by three factors: desire to learn, incentives, or fear of failure. As we grow, most of the early curiosity is tested away, and school becomes work. Obstacles increase, desire to learn decreases, and incentives and/or fear of failure move to the forefront. Jack Canfield, self-esteem expert, reports that 80 percent of first graders posses high self-esteem, but by high school graduation, this drops to a staggering five percent.

A pretty sad statistic, but some good suggestions.
