Student iMovie Project

One of my goals this year was to allow my students more opportunities to create and manipulate media to demonstrate their understanding of content we cover in class. Through the chaos of my first year at a new school, I was not able to offer these opportunities for all assessments, but I am happy to say that my students are taking advantage of more and more opportunities. Below is an example of one such opportunity. After completion of our Poverty Unit in my International Relations class, one option was for student’s to demonstrate their learning through the creation of a Public Service Announcement, designed to educate the public about poverty. With very little direction from me, and using only a MacAir with iMovie, a couple students created this great PSA.
