Kloczko Day 2


Are you looking for that ONE strategy that will get your students reading, writing, and talking about books? Book trailers promote creation and collaboration and meet the technology and literacy demands of the Common Core. In this hands-on workshop, you'll learn about book trailers, how to use and create them with students, and you will create your own! Bring any and all digital devices! We will explore a variety of digital tools, from beginner to advanced to use with whatever devices you have in your classroom. Free and low cost apps can be used with your iPad, Chromebook, laptop, dusty old desktop, or even your iTouch or phone!


How do book trailers meet the Common Core Standards? Here are the K-12 anchor standards that will be addressed in this session:

  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.R.2 Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development; summarize the key supporting details and ideas.

  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.R.7 Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse media and formats, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words.

  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.4 Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.

  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.5 Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach.\
