During the first week of the lesson, the teacher will survey the groups of how many students have access to the Internet, email, and recording devices. 2. Prepare the Materials: To better facilitate the lesson, the teacher will ensure that materials are available by using a checklist. 3.

The students will also be exposed to tools involving technology. This lesson was created to accommodate schools that have block schedule. The following procedures are recommended to be followed or modified as needed: Week 1: 1. The teacher will group the students in groups of 5 through a count-off. The students will go to the designated table which is marked by a number. There will be a total of 5 groups. 2. The teacher will ask students’ knowledge of careers or professions and create a listing on the white board. The teacher will then introduce the interview project and each student will be required to ask the interviewee a question. In other words, every group member will be in the recording of the interview. Advise students to seek adult assistance especially if project is being conducted outside of class. This is a great opportunity for parents and guardians to be engaged in their children’s schoolwork. 3. The teacher will show a video sample using a computer and projector of a student interviewing a soldier on Motionbox (http://www.motionbox.com). 4. After viewing the video, the teacher will give students class time (about 5 to 10 minutes) to think, discuss, and list down the possible individuals that would agree to an interview. 5. Assignment due next class meeting: One student from each group will send an email to the teacher the possible candidate and the profession for the interview. 6. The teacher will notify the students when the interview project is due which is during week 4. Week 2: 1. The teacher will introduce a web tool called Motionbox (http://www.motionbox.com), navigate the website, demonstrate how to create an account, and upload video recordings. 2. The students will take turns using the computer to create their Motionbox account. The account will be labeled as follows: Username: Group__#__careerinterview Password: MrsSantos Email Address: Teacher’s email address
  4. 4. 4 3. The students will be given class time to type their scripts using Microsoft Word. The teacher will instruct the groups how to create their scripts and must have the following format: Introduction: Welcome Remarks Body: 5 questions Conclusion: Closing Remarks This assignment is due during week 3. 4. The teacher will remind the students of the due date of the interview project which is during week 4. Week 3: 1. The teacher reviewed and returned scripts back to the groups. 2. The teacher will review with the students about the interview project. The teacher will advise students to dress appropriately, kindly request the interviewee if possible, to wear their uniform if available; record and upload video onto the website (http://www.motionbox.com). 3. The groups will be given class time to practice. The teacher will visit each group, critique, and provide feedback as needed. Week 4: 1. Interview projects are due. The groups will present their project. 2. The teacher will ask questions about the class to provide comments on each video presented. 3. The teacher will evaluate the interview project.

  6. 6. 6 Evaluate Media Components: Throughout the 4-week lesson, the teacher will aid in the success of the project by monitoring the use of Medias in the classroom. The teacher will accommodate and modify procedures, due dates of assignments, and the initial project if necessary due to failure of computer system and the inability to access the Internet. Notes:______________________________________________________________ Evaluate Instructor Performance: The teacher should carefully consider students’ interest and acknowledge all responses with positive or constructive criticism. Ask students to provide feedback by asking them to comment about the process of the project, their likes and dislikes, the level of difficulty, the use of the technology tools (recording devices, uploading, creating the Motionbox account, etc….), and suggestions on how the process of the project could be improved. The should be open to all responses of the students regardless if the comments are either negative or positive. Notes should be marked on the lesson plan in the appropriate sections of the lesson.
