RDG 350 Week 2 Caldecott and Newbery Award Book Commercials
Research the Caldecott and Newbery awards.
Select and read one book honored by each of the awards (two books total).
Develop a book trailer for these two books. You can create one trailer for the Caldecott book and one for the Newberry, or you can create one trailer that has both books in it.
Choose a way to present the book trailer. Samples of resources for this assignment can be found in the Technology Resource Library. You may wish to film the book trailer on a tablet or phone. You can then post it privately online to share with the instructor or submit the video file. Share the link along with resources on your assignment tab in a Microsoft® Word document.
Write the book trailer script and then film it.
Include the following elements in the book trailer:
A hook to get listeners or viewers interested in the award-winning books
The title of the books, authors’ names, and illustrators, if any
Background on the awards and reasons why each book is deserving of the award
Genre of each book and characteristics of the book that place it within the genre
Synopsis of each book
The audience and/or scenario to select this particular book
An ending teaser so listeners or viewers will want to pick up the books and read them
Note: The book trailers should be between 3 and 4 minutes in length.
Submit a link to your book trailer in a Microsoft® Word document for the instructor. The document should include your name and references according to APA guidelines.
