In this project, students will complete an informational video that will educate the class on one of the events that occurred in the 1920s.

Your video should be about 5 minutes in length. It should include informational narration and images that will present the information in a clear and entertaining manner.

Ms. Tarr will teach the class the basics of the video software on the iPads. We will have several days in the library for research and writing.

Grading:

1. You will receive a classwork/homework grade for each of the following:
  • Textbook outline notes
  • Script for your video. This must be checked and approved before you start your documentary.
2. You will receive a test grade for the completed documentary. It will be produced on the iPad and presented to the class.

Steps:

  1. Complete reading assignment from the textbook and take notes as you read. This reading will be the basis for your project and will help guide your research in the library.
  2. In the library, research your project further. Use the library's desktop computers (not iPads) for this step. Save any information, especially relevant pictures, cartoons, and photographs to your Google Drive.
  3. With your group, organize your information. Write a cohesive and organized script. Mark the pictures you will use at each point in the script.
  4. Show your script to Ms. Burque for approval. Only when it is approved will you be able to move on to the next step.
  5. Start creating your documentary on the iPads.
