Week of November 18, Creating Media

Hi everyone,

Last week, when I showed you the Youth for Human Rights videos on the UDHR, many of you said you wanted us to make media too. Today we will brainstorm possible ways we could create media about Human Rights. Please visit School Tube (click on link) and look at the videos made at Newcomers High School in the media center.

Watch at least 5 films.

Then in Google docs, please answer the questions below:
  1. How do you feel about the videos you saw and why?
  2. If you had a chance to make media about human rights, what would you like the topic to be?
  3. If you had a chance to make media about human rights, what format would you like to use (newscast, acting in the studio, documentary, voice over still photos, interviews, public service announcements, etc.)?
Post your answers to our class blog. Then respond to two other students' posts.
