Students will explore the concept of being an informed citizen by choosing a segment of a news show, researching, writing a script, and recording the show. This is the perfect end of year activities! Scholars are engaged, have choice and working with material that is very relevant to them.
I break this project up into 7 days.
Day 1: Engage and Explore
Day 2 and 3: Explain - research
Day 4: Elaborate- writing script
Day 5: Practice
Day 6: Record the show
Day 7: Watch the show
(Day 5-7 are optional, my scholars love recording and then watching their show. I edit the show using imovie then watch it as a class)
Day 5 can be substituted to a presenting day where each group does their segment for the class.
