This week all of the classes that came in to the library viewed some of the nominees in the School Library Journal Trailee Awards. I downloaded the nominees in the "Adult created for Secondary" category. After watching the four nominees students voted using Poll Everywhere and their cell phones. We also watched a few more just for fun and then texted in the books they would like to see made into a book trailer. The students really enjoyed the trailers and I have lots of requests for those titles. The title Unwind by Neal Shusterman was the winner for our classes. I hope to collaborate with a few teachers and have the students create their own trailers using Flips and Moviemaker. We have lots of creative students that might create one that we could send in to the SLJ competition next year.
Voting ends October 22nd so visit the site soon.
