Ways to ScreenCastify in Teaching and Learning
A book trailer essentially is the same idea as a movie trailer – it provides a dynamic way to introduce the plot, characters, setting, and conflict to entice a viewer or reader to seek out the full version. Students could use this concept to demonstrate their knowledge of a historical event, document, or person from their story.
Students can use video to re-create their interpretation of significant scenes in their stories. By using video, rather than just performing a skit, students can also integrate music, images, and even other video clips.
Public Service Announcements and Advertisements
Students can use the format of a public service announcement or advertisement to teach a concept, explain a theme, or promote an author. These formats can be applied to practically any topic.
Steps of the Writing Process
Students can design a screencast that follows the Stages of their Writing Process.
Common Core Integration
