Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

For this project, students will show they understand plot, tone, and theme by creating an imovie that summarizes their book and theme while matching the music they create in Garage Band to the tone of the different parts of the book. The end project is similar to a movie trailer, but it summarizes the entire book.
