The Big Tease: Trailers are a terrific way to hook kids on books

The Big Tease: Trailers are a terrific way to hook kids on books | Creating readers | Scoop.it

what makes a great trailer? “You want it to have a little bit of a narrative so the audience gets a taste of what the book is about but not everything you can know,”

book trailers can give libraries a powerful way to connect with kids and talk with them about books “in a way that’s appealing to them,” says Braun.

School libraries and school librarians must move beyond the ... rhetoric...

It is important to ground this advocacy on strong research evidence, as well as evidence born in and derived from professional action.. that demonstrates this in tangible and meaningful ways.

... evidence-based practice ....is an approach to articulating the basis of our beliefs and the claims we can make about the value and role of libraries.

I see it is a move from a rhetorical warrant to an evidential warrant for school libraries; from a tell me framework to a show me framework, from a persuasive or advocacy framework to a declarative framework.
