On the Digital Book Talk site, you will find high quality book trailers that will whet your appetite for a good book. Search for books by content level and interests. Then click on a book to be taken to the book's page. Included on each page is a short video (some created by students), book synopsis, lexile level, publication date, number of pages, genre, and ISBN number. Teachers and library/media specialists can join the project and contribute videos. Read the "UB the Director" area ( UB=You Be).
In the ClassroomThis is an excellent place for students to start their search for a book that will hold their interest. Find a book trailer to introduce a novel that the whole class will be reading or set up classroom computers with a link to Digital Book Talk where students can be inspired to find their next read. Have students create their own book talks and share the videos using a tool such as TeacherTube reviewed here. Share this site on your teacher web page for students and families to access during summer.
