Rubric for Vocabulary Digital Story Document Transcript

  • 1. Lesson 6: Vocabulary Digital Story You will be choosing 5 vocabulary words from your content area and creating a Digital Story with them. You may NOT use Power Point (it will not upload to TeacherTube unless you “dump” the slides into PhotoStory) You may use one of the two following programs: PhotoStory (the easiest to learn) or iMovie (Apple). The basic assignment is that you must have 5 “slides” (or 5 page changes) and the words must be defined with in a story or commercial. You choose the words and the story as they relate to your textbook. Think in terms of which part of the text you want to complete your Study Guide (the last assignment for this course). It can be a section or part of the book. The story may be fictional, true, or “borrowed.” (Give credit on the last image.) You may NOT copy a digital story that is on the web currently. 3 9 13 Story – the most Story has less than 3 Story has between 3-5 Story has at least 5 important element words highlighted; some words highlighted; some vocabulary words story elements are story elements missing; highlighted by titles or missing; or is not or is not relevant to text; includes common relevant to target target student audience. story elements*; is student audience. relevant to target student Sounds like it is read audience from a textbook.
