Notecard Confession Videos are simple to make but can have a powerful impact.
Students start by researching a topic. They must dig deep to understand the emotions that people were experiencing during this time. It goes beyond the memorized facts. Using notecards, students write simple, but yet powerful, statements on multiple cards. Placing a flip camera or even a cell phone in front of them, they display the cards one at a time telling a story. Add a little background music to enhance the project even more.
In this project students are going to create a note card confession that illustrates how America didn't DUCK its Destiny! They will take on a perspective of a person, place, or thing or AMERICA (as if America is a person) who has overcame diversity or thrived in a historical time period. In other words: How did this person, place or thing, contribute to the "Dynasty" that America has become?
This project comes with colorful and clear step by step student instructions and a grade rubric. This one is more geared towards a culminating project..
