My Thirteenth Winter written by Samantha Abeel. 
Book Trailer created by Sheena D.
Grades (6-8) 
Process: I first thought about what the story was telling to me and wrote it in my own words.  What was the main message?  Then I made a story board.  Next I found an imovie trailer that I wanted to use and that had music to set the mood of despair at the beginning.  Then as the girl triumphed, the music also get more exciting.  I planned out my video shots according to the message of the book and the number of shots required for this paticular movie trailer( ). The story is written by Samantha who had all the warning signs that there was something different about her learning especially with any math concepts.  However, it wasn't until she was 13 that she found out she had a disability called dyscalculia.  I chose this book trailer because it is important for everyone to understand that we all learn differently and when we face challenges in life we can't give up.
