Movie trailers use marketing strategies to "sell" the movie to an audience.
Consist of a series of selected shots from the film
These are strategically chosen from the best scenes and are often shown out of order.
Studios have less than 2 1/2 minutes to attract their audience

Students will analyze selected movie trailers for two main purposes:
Artistic Elements - words, narration, sound,pacing, plot, theme, visuals, and tone
Persuasive Elements - target audience, claim, propaganda techniques, rhetorical devices, ethos, pathos, and logos.

Based on these elements, students will judge the effectiveness of the trailer.

Students will be able to:

Determine an author’s point of view or purpose in a text and analyze how an author uses rhetoric to advance that point of view or purpose. [CC.9-10.R.I.6 Craft and Structure]
Delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, assessing whether the reasoning is valid and the evidence is relevant and sufficient; identify false statements and fallacious reasoning [CC.9-10.R.I.8 Integration of Knowledge and Ideas]
Analyze seminal U.S. documents of historical and literary significance (e.g., Washington’s Farewell Address, the Gettysburg Address, Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms speech, King’s "Letter From Birmingham Jail"), including how they address related themes and concepts. [CC.9-10.R.I.9 Integration of Knowledge and Ideas]
