Improvements in technology and communications are rapidly altering the way we interact worldwide! Use the engaging viral video, "Kony 2012", as a case study to introduce your students to the power and effects of modern technology on our world today!
A PowerPoint presentation will guide your instruction through the entire 5E designed lesson. Begin with an intriguing photo analysis activity and discuss the concept of viral videos. Next, an overview of the situation in Africa and the LRA prepares your class with the background knowledge needed to view the video. A student handout accompanies the video with questions to answer while it plays. A summary activity challenges students to view the persuasive techniques of viral videos and the use of propaganda in modern culture.
Includes: PowerPoint Presentation with activities, Student video questions, Modified version of Student Video Handout, Video questions answer key, and a teacher quick reference guide.
The video can be seen on YouTube. A search of the internet can easily find the video. A link is included. It does deal with a serious subject matter, so I would recommend previewing it before showing your class. I use this lesson in a sixth grade class for a point of reference.
Hope you and your students enjoy! Please check my TpT store for more great lessons I am adding all the time. Thanks!
