Have students pick a book that has been banned somewhere in the world to read. Students should research the reasons why the book was banned. You can use this banned book video project to have students show you what they've learned about banned books. They will present their video to the class.
It has two video options: (1) Students can create a book trailer video for their chosen book that includes the reasons for the ban and persuades their peers to read it anyway or (2) They can create an argument video arguing against or for the banning of their book.
There is a rubric that can be used for both options. There is a group tracker that you can use if you decide to have students work in groups: it has a place for each group member to write down the jobs they've done in this project so you can clearly see how each student has contributed.
There is a resource list with several links to guides that will show students how to create videos, free online video editors, and links to examples of these kind of videos.
Students can do this project individually or in groups. I am always happy to customize projects for your classroom needs- just ask if you want something adjusted or changed. Thanks!
