8th grade students make 1-2 minute book trailers, similar to a movie trailer, for books in the media center. I attached a QR code to the books and I have a ipod at the check-out desk that students can get and scan the QR codes. It links them directly to the book trailer on the media center Youtube channel. Hopefully this will be a great way to spark kids interest in books that they otherwise would have passed up!
