Content Trailer Website
West Baton Rouge Parish School Technology Website - Content Trailers can be one of those tools that establish a strong visual point for students to grasp while they begin to inquire during the Readiness Mindful Teaching Phase.
So what is a Content Trailer? Very simply, a Content Trailer is a short, 2- to 3-minute, media-rich experience from which a point of inquiry can begin. The vehicle is unimportant in the relationship to the concept. Providing students with the images and sounds that can be attached to the textual information that they will be exploring can provide a profound shift in the way learning is engaged. Content Trailers can be one tool to help the process of inquiry begin.
Content trailers are a great tool to be used during the Readiness Mindful Teaching Phase. These videos are sure to grab your students' attention and get them into the lesson. You may also create a lesson where your students create their own content trailers, then you will be moving into the Transfer and Performance Stages of Mindful Teaching!
