Reel Reading: A Child Called ‘It’

20130207-190708.jpgI’d love to get my students to do some of this cool typography. Since they will be making their book trailers this week, I wanted to show them this option for their creations.

I’ve had great success getting even the most reluctant readers to read A Child Called ‘It’ by Dave Pelzer.

See? Isn’t all that letter and word movement cool?

If students like the topic of abuse (which I don’t quite understand), they might also like Ellen Foster by Kaye Gibbons. I haven’t seen the movie, but this trailer looks like it’s pretty well done.

Maybe next time I’ll look for happy topics.

Sheesh, Amy. This is depressing stuff.
