Spotlight on: Grade 4 Enrichment Library Classes #resvt #cesuvt #booktrailers #vsla #tlchat

RES fourth graders have been learning about advertising and media literacy in their enrichment library classes. As culminating projects, the fourth graders created their own commercials for books they wanted to recommend to others. Their goals for these projects were

  • to provide some information about the books
  • to use at least two advertising strategies to convince other people to read them

Students were able to choose
  • the format of the commercials: audio or video
  • which books to promote
  • which advertising strategies to use
We are very proud of their work! Take a look at the advertising strategies in the photo at the bottom of this blog post and see if you can identify the strategies in the different commercials.

We hope you enjoy these first few samples; we will be adding additional commercials to the enrichment library class blog, ThinkCreateCollaborate, as they are completed. - Darcie Rankin, RES Enrichment Teacher and Beth Redford, RES Teacher Librarian
