Video Projects for Elementary and Middle Schools.
Kyker, Keith; Curchy, Christopher
With step-by-step plans for 25 creative curriculum-based video projects, this project guide for elementary and middle school educators facilitates video production. Activities that span the curriculum increase student knowledge in a variety of subjects while building video production skills and putting students in an active role with television. The focus is on hands-on projects in the areas of social development, social studies, language arts, science, mathematics, safety and health, physical education, art, and school and community, but the book also includes notes to teachers, tips for improving student work, and fully reproducible handouts. In addition, equipment and techniques for video projects are reviewed--camcorders, audio mixers, macro projects, audio dubbing, and more. A discussion is also provided on how to evaluate video projects, how to manage an elementary or middle school video production program, and how to communicate with parents. (MAS)
