Retelling Scary Stories with iMovie

Sixth graders in Mrs. Dachelet's READ 180 class just wrapped up a unit reading scary stories.  To share one story that they read, students created trailers using iMovie.  Each group read one particular story of its choice and then mapped out the main events of the story.  Students brainstormed words and phrases that revealed the important plot elements, but did not give too much of the story away.  Then, they used iMovie's trailer templates to create the videos featured below.  Play their story trailers to find out more about what they have been reading.  Are you interested in reading these stories yourself?  Come into the library and we can help you find them.
