Motivate Your Students Through Filmmaking!

Published on

The Take2 Youth Media Program takes advantage of today’s youthful fascination with technology in order to motivate active learning in social science, environmental science, English, and media literacy. Working individually or in teams, students create short documentaries or public service announcements that are designed to inform, entertain, or advocate on issues illustrated by the footage provided. How-to videos, worksheets, PowerPoint presentations, and other activities lead students step-by step through the process of researching their topic, critically analyzing issues, and creating logical and persuasive arguments and compelling conclusions. Upon completion of their documentaries, students learn leadership and public speaking skills by presenting their projects to classmates or to the general public. The curriculum is flexible and can be completed in as little as 5-7 classroom periods or (including optional activities) over the course of several months. Assessment rubrics and other teacher support materials are provided.

Each module contains a complete curriculum and 3-5 hours of broadcast-quality video footage. Teaching units are designed to support state and national standards. Topics include Cuba (economics, politics, culture, etc.), Sudan (genocide, education, health care, politics, etc.), and global environmental issues (energy, water, oceans, and conservation). The licensing fee is $50-$95 per classroom per year.
Take2 is a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
