Most students love to watch film and they also love to go to the
movies. So they are already somewhat familiar with trailers whose
purpose is to promote or market upcoming releases. Today, teachers
and students can watch trailers via websites, so they are more
accessible than ever. This lesson is for teachers who wish to
consider using trailers to teach students how to be critical
thinkers, identify mood & tone, and about persuasive
techniques. Students will also have the opportunity to get hands on
experience while making their own trailer for one of the videos
they have previously made in your class.

In this lesson students will have the opportunity to learn what
film trailers are and why they are used. This lesson will contain
lecture, vocabulary, Hollywood trailer examples, and student made
trailer examples.
