Classroom Close-Ups: A Guide to Using Video Technology in the Classroom.
This book, designed for grades four through eight, offers a variety of lessons designed to provide teachers with plans for using video technology in the classroom. Many curricular areas are addressed in order to provide a range of educational alternatives from which to choose. Most of the lessons require students to work in cooperative groups of four to six students. Each entry contains behavioral objectives, materials, time and equipment requirements, and procedures. Most lessons begin with brief descriptions and also provide hints for avoiding "glitches" which can mar attempts at new procedures. Many of the activities in this document benefit from the creation of scripts and storyboards. Activities are provided for language arts and literature; history and social studies; science; mathematics; visual and performing arts; and miscellaneous projects. Also included are reproducible worksheets for scripts and storyboards; a pre-taping checklist; a list of online projects and forums for discussion between teachers; and a glossary. (AEF)
