Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Kristin Fletcher-Spear
Using two literature classes as case studies, Bedard and Fuhrken provide literature teachers with a practical guide to integrating technology into their curriculum. Both case studies begin with fictional reading. The first class uses the reading as a basis for creating a movie. The second class uses historical fiction to begin a nonfiction exploration to create a visual nonfiction essay video. Using technology to engage students in a creative manner allows teachers to incorporate screenwriting; storyboarding; and visual, technological, and information literacy skills along with the traditional literature circles. While this book has a very limited audience, the price and practical examples make it an enticing addition for school media centers' collections meant for teachers. Of particular interest are the appendices, which encompass a third of the text. Appendix A provides handouts and tips on the movie-making process using The Bridge to Terabithia as an example. The handouts cover delivering a pitch, storyboarding, comparing a book and its movie, scriptwriting, camera techniques, and more. Appendix B provides a more traditional approach to nonfiction essays, like verifying information and avoiding plagiarism, but then expands on the technological aspect of creating a video with a production rubric. Overall, this is for media centers in schools looking to have more cross-curriculum projects. Reviewer: Kristin Fletcher-Spear
