Seventh Graders Create Movie Trailers as Part of Memoir Study
Seventh-graders, who are studying memoirs in their English language arts classes, worked on a project that challenged them to incorporate text, images and music into a movie trailer about a book of their choice.
Each student presented his or her book trailer before fielding questions and comments from fellow classmates. Some of the books that the students read included “My Thirteenth Winter” by Samantha Abeel, “Warriors Don’t Cry” by Melba Pattillo Beals and “Hero of the Underground” by Jason Peter.
As part of the reading unit on memoirs, the students examined essential questions that asked them to think about how experiences can change one’s perspective and what factors influence the development of one’s identity.
