i think that the purpose of independent reading is to try to show students just how fun/interesting reading a book can be. to encourage students to read, you could expand your online ebook selection, because some students dont get books simply because they lose them easily. For my second quarter book, i chose the rose and the dagger. i chose this book because i personally like the series. after reading the first chapter of the book, im not sure what exactly is going to happen. the first chapter is just a flashback. i liked the book as soon as i started reading it, and i couldn’t put it down. As for the book trailer, i don’t really have any concerns, except my lack of ability to create videos (im assuming the book trailer will have to be in a video format.) Otherwise, i don’t have anything else to say about it in regards to concerns.
