Reading and Writing for a Documentary Project

This is an overview of a classroom literacy project where students used iPads to create their own Digital Documentary. All of the student-created animal videos can be viewed at: http://vimeo.com/channels/animalproject

 

The engaging videos these kids produced required the same research, reading and writing as a traditional report. In addition they needed to hone the scripts of their self chosen topics until they sounded right for a documentary. This meant they had to write, edit and practice reading aloud and with expression - developing fluency. The kids really enjoyed this project and had something excellent to share at the end. I love the touch that the films end with several shots of the author as they worked on the project. A great model for developing readers in the content areas.
