Creating a movie trailer allows students to share many different skills or knowledge in a fun, creative way. Offering a student a chance to share information in such a way as an iMovie
trailer, allows the student to script their thoughts, plan out the action of the video, and include creative techniques to tell the story. When listing order in a sequence of events, an iMovie trailer can be a perfect way to use vocabulary such as before, after, next, first, and last.
Here’s an example of how you could go about this:
Step 1 – Make a Plan
Have the students make a plan by brainstorming their ideas on the below template. You can make paper copies, or if you use Google Classroom, use this as a template to have them enter in their thoughts. Make your copy here.
Step 2 – Make some Slides
Step 3 – Take some video
Students should be encouraged to use video as an option to explain parts of the story. iOS devices and Chromebooks both allow you to easily take video and even add simple effects to them.
Step 4 – Get it all together
- a Plan
- Some images to help guide your video
- Some video to insert into your overall video.
