A really FUN way to get your students up out of their desks and being creative on their feet!
My motto is "The adults in your lives have spent the last decade telling you to sit down and be quiet. This is your chance! I'm asking you to STAND UP AND SAY SOMETHING!!"
Inspired by the "Your Three Words" video projects collected by ABC's Good Morning America, this project gives students this challenge..."If you could tell the world ANYTHING you wanted, but you had to do it with only THREE words, what would YOU say?"
Then the project guides them through process of not only choosing their words, but coming up with fun, inventive, creative, and meaningful way to present those words that will add power and impact.
The assignment sheet gives details, timeline, tips, grading rubric, grading examples, and even places on the web where students (and teacher) can go to see example videos made by others around the globe.
I like to take individual student videos from each class and then set them to music and make a "class compilation video." The students seem to LOVE this chance to let THEIR voice be heard in THEIR creative ways.
I ALWAYS have a BLAST doing this project! One of my favorites ALWAYS!!
