In Their Own Words: Coteaching Project at Prosper High School Helps Students Create Video PSAs
Cameron, Stacy; Butcher, Adria; Haight, Christine
Knowledge Quest, v40 n4 p28-33 Mar-Apr 2012
Collaboration and coteaching with classroom teachers and campus specialists are the cornerstones of a successful school library program. Whereas collaboration is the process of planning a lesson or unit of instruction, coteaching suggests a much deeper level of collaboration--one in which both the teacher and campus specialist (be it school librarian or instructional technology coach or both) are working in sync as they codeliver content to a class while maintaining their respective areas of expertise. Judi Moreillon asserts that coteaching "is one way for school librarians to position the library program at the center of the school's academic program where it can contribute significantly to student achievement." In this article, the authors discuss coteaching a multimedia project in which students created their own public-service announcements (PSAs). The student-created PSAs included evidence of ethos, pathos, and logos. The project also allowed students to explore media-literacy topics, properly select and cite copyright-friendly music and images, and use a variety of technological equipment and software programs to create the final product.
