Teaching Tip: Video Book Introductions

Teaching Tip: Video Book Introductions

As we all know, in a guided reading lesson, the book introduction plays a critical role in preparing students for reading the book by providing a synopsis, looking at challenging words, rehearsing unusual language structures, and reviewing interesting text features. But it’s also a great way to get students excited about reading the book—and this is why book introductions are such a powerful component of the remote lesson. In remote guided reading lessons, a particularly effective technique involves filming your book intro in such a way that the screen displays you talking and also shows the digital book. If you would like to create your own video book introductions that include a view of the digital book you are working with, watch our Mac/PC how-to videos!
