"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

Book Trailers: Get the students hooked!

As a pre-service teacher I'm always learning new things to engage my students. I love collecting activites and ideas from veteran teachers that I can work to incorporate into my classroom. In my Adolescent Lit. class we've been doing book-talks. Pretty much it is suppose to be a way to hook the students into the book. We had to make our own and also highlight a technique we found elsewhere.

For mine I made an artifact bag, showing important parts from Frank Beddor's The Looking Glass Wars.






The example I showed was a book trailer for Scott Westerfield's Leviathan. This book is going to be awesome, and I feel like the trailer really would capture students attention.



Here's some other trailers for books which look really good:

A Madness of Angels by Kate Griffin


Behind Every Illusion by Christina Harner


Impossible by Nancy Werlin


Candor by Pam Bachorz


The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey
