PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

What would video chats between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson about the Founding Documents sound and look like? In this engaging project, students will create avatars that look like Jefferson and Adams and import their own written text to hear them speak on the grievances of the Declaration of Independence, their views on the Federalist/Anti-Federalist Debate, and the historical precedents of the Bill of Rights.

Throughout the project students will:

1) Respond to a Bell Ringer in which students watch a couple video clips on recent technological advancements in instant messaging and consider how this has changed the dynamics of communication.

2) Read an introductory piece about the up-and-down friendship between Adams and Jefferson that was predicated on their roles in the founding of America and their love of writing letters.

3) Prepare rough drafts of what Jefferson or Adams would tell each other about the grievances in the Declaration of Independence, the Federalist/Anti-Federalist Debate, and the historical precedents of the Bill of Rights.

4) Create and publish avatars that closely resemble Jefferson and Adams and import their written rough drafts to enable their avatars to speak.
