My co-worker Ms Henderson recently completed an interesting projects where the students conducted character mock interviews. During the three day class period, students took on the persona of a biographical character in history. They composed questions and answers based on what they read in their biographies and for recording a mock interview as if they were the character.
Here are two excellent projects that I would like to share. Using iPads in the Library Media Center, the students used the iMovie 11 app to complete their assignments. In post production one of my students Cameron, provided the voice over at the beginning of the video introducing the projects. I think we have a new James Earl Jones!
