Here is the link to La Follette High's Pinterest of book trailers that La Follette students have made.

Below - view this trailer for Gina Damico's book "Croak" that a library aide made this year.
Below - watch this book trailer for the graphic novel, "Yummy: The Last Days of a Southside Shorty" by G. Neri. It's the true story - in a comic book format - of the story of Robery "Yummy" Sandifer, an eleven year old boy in Chicago who became a fugtitive after killing a neighbor girl.
This is La Follette High's Pinterest Board for movie and book trailers of books we have in the LMC.
Below is the book trailer for "Jarhead" by Anthony Swofford. He writes in first person about his own experiences as a U.S. Marine in the First Gulf War.
There are so many ways to make a book trailer. You can:
1. Put together pictures and words (text) with background music (a sound track).
2. Put together pictures and short video clips (or even video game animation) with text.
3. Put together pictures and/or video clips (or even video game animation) with your own narration (called a voiceover).
4. Act something out (video record your friends!)
5. Use clay, play-dough, sock puppets, dolls, etc. to create a video using stop motion animation.
6. (like #5) Use a dry erase board or notebook to animate words and add a music track (like a soundtrack).
What are your ideas?
