This lesson was one of the funnest and hardest to do.
To start; our assignment required us to create a short instructional video on any subject contained within the California Standards for grades K-12 education. Acting in an rapid fashion, our class created multiple groups of three to work together. Each group had to come up with a subject to teach (instruct). Then the group had to create a pitch and storyboard for how the video production would be formed. Our group decided to do the planets of our solar system with a Star Wars theme to capture the intended audience (5th graders). Follow the links below.
Brief ASSESSMENT, please complete.
After reviewing the ITSE standards below, I feel this experience helped me achieve all those points to some degree. The entertainment the kids would get out of my amateur attempt at video production will have a lasting affect. (Hopefully they won’t require professional help after the trauma.) But in all honesty, what better way to learn a subject than having to teach it. I hope I will retain and continue to follow these standards into my class room.
