In this PowerPoint adventure, students will be sent all over the globe investigating strange occurrences. They will work cooperatively to create a mock newscast detailing the problem and plausible explanation.
Along the way, students will incorporate research, critical thinking, cooperative problem solving, and narrative technique, as they write, revise, and perform their newscast. It is designed so that both performers and audience will be enriched.
This resource has extra video links, guides to team edit and provide meaningful feedback to another team, a rubric, and eight scenarios that will challenge students to dig for those hard to reach answers.
