Student-Made Documentaries (7th Grade)
So we've done the research paper thing, now what?During the third quarter, the 7th-grade language arts students were given this project to work on in small groups of two or three students.
The creation of documentaries provides students with an innovative way to apply research skills and investigate a topic. They developed claims and then had to find evidence and experts in that area to support their claims. They learned how to use the features of this format, including narration, visual imagery, and interviews. Using WeVideo, students edited their video and audio footage to effectively communicate and support their claims.
The students videos can be found on the Schools YouTube page. https://youtube.com/HSD53543/videos
