Book Trailers For Readers is a wiki that provides examples and how-to instructions on how students can create multimedia presentations about the books they read.

In addition to the tools they recommend, you could also start out with much more simple online presentation applications like Bookr.

Student presentations can then be added to class blogs and other students can comment on them. I’m sure I’ll have students try doing them on our Intermediate English and Ninth Grade English blogs.

I’ll be adding this post to My Best Posts On Books: Why They’re Important & How To Help Students Select, Read, Write & Discuss Them.

Thank to Free Technology For Teachers for the tip.
