Creating History Documentaries: A Step-by-Step Guide to Video Projects in the Classroom.
This guide offers an easy introduction to social studies teachers wanting to challenge their students with creative media by bringing the past to life. The 14-step guide shows teachers and students the techniques needed for researching, scripting, and editing a historical documentary. Using a video camera and computer software, students can integrate historical photos, film footage, interviews, and primary-source materials to create a project that can be shared with students, parents, and community members. Students learn to research using the newest tools, write narrative scripts that integrate historical facts, and build a project that allows history to come alive. The guide includes how-to information about video cameras, new digital video cameras, computer software, online research, and sources of historical photographic film and video footage. Includes worksheets and forms. (BT)
