Abstract

This paper presents data from several studies that analyze the effects of a video-based reading curriculum that opens up new opportunities for teaching text-averse, digital learners to become good readers and writers. The Digital Booktalk (DBT) Model is a curriculum that utilizes video book trailers to match potential readers to books and to demonstrate how they can build ones of their own. This curriculum was developed over the past six years that combines digital storytelling and video as a source of motivation. Our studies confirmed the validity of the curriculum model that teaches students to create their own trailers, which has been found to be effective in motivating otherwise text-averse, striving readers to overcome their reluctance to read. This presentation will show video trailers from the site, describe its associated activities, and discuss the results of these studies.
