Kid Lit Movies: Book Trailers for Young Readers - Julie Hembree

Nothing sells books to digital natives more than video! In this bring-your-own, hands-on session, participants will learn about the power of integrating literacy, technology, and the Common Core standards through the creation of book trailers. We will view samples made by primary, middle, high school and adults and then learn the steps to making a successful book trailer. You will leave this session with knowledge and experience in creating a book trailer yourself, so you can bring the lesson back to your school with confidence.

Participants need to bring a favorite children or young adult novel. You will also need to bring your own Windows device pre-loaded with Microsoft Photostory 3 or Windows Live MovieMaker. Mac and iPad users will need to have iMovie pre-installed. I will be demonstrating how to make a trailer using Photostory 3 for Windows. The core of this session will be creating a book trailer, not teaching the program itself, so basic familiarity with your favorite digital storytelling program is a pre-requisite.

Julie Hembree has been an educator for 24 years and the Library Media Specialist at Bell Elementary in Kirkland, WA for the past eight years. Julie is passionate about using creativity to link books, technology, and the global education community together in order for students to have a voice that matters. Last spring her students sent over 1100 books to four partner schools in Ghana, Lesotho, and South Africa with her "Books to Africa" global literacy project. Julie was a 2012 Microsoft® Partners in Learning US Forum winner and a finalist at the Global Forum in Prague, Czech Republic with her project Kid Lit Movies: Book Trailers for Young Readers. She has presented at various conferences and workshops on literacy and the use of technology tools in the library classroom. Julie hosts the BulldogReaderBlog, which focuses on linking books, lessons, and technology. She is a mother to three adult children and in her spare time loves to read, ski, travel and take walks with her dogs and her husband Joe, who always keeps her laughing.
