what do you mean by movie pilots?
As we briefly summarized on the Home page, this website was created by a group of Juniors in their History and English classes for a project called America at war in American Studies. In our English classes, we each chose a WW2 novel and analyzed it in reading groups. After dissecting the themes and messages in our novels, we were assigned to make a movie trailer for each of our books to explore symbolism and imagery. (For clarification, there are no actual movies made, we simply made a trailer for a theoretical movie.) Though our History group made this website, we each had different English groups in which we chose different novels and made trailers, which is why there is a novel summary and trailer for all three of the possible books we could read: Slaughterhouse-five, Maus, and Catch-22. We had great fun and put a lot of work into these trailers, so we hope you enjoy them!
