Answer Sheet to Accompany Assignment: LP2: Digital Movie

Name: Claudia Nikole Dunn

1. What GPS does your movie fulfill?

S3L1. Students will investigate the habitats of different organisms and the dependence of organisms on their habitat.
a. Differentiate between habitats of Georgia (mountains, marsh/swamp, coast, Piedmont, Atlantic Ocean) and the organisms that live there.




2. Briefly describe the lesson/project that you would have students make this movie for.

Brief:
Students will create an original video production address a life science standard. Topics include researching the following: habitats in Georgia’s mountain regions & the organisms that live there, habitats in Georgia’s marsh/swamp regions & the organisms that live there, habitats in Georgia’s coastal regions & the organisms that live there, habitats in Georgia’s Piedmont regions & the organisms that live there, or habitats in Georgia’s Atlantic Ocean & the organisms that live there.
Students’ productions should be at least two minutes in length, include at least one video clip, have a sound effect voice over, and a roll of credits for copy rights.

Lesson Outline:
1.) Lesson will begin towards the end of this standard’s unit to finalize and close up what was learned from the unit.
2.) Students will pick an element from the provided standard for their movie production project & get assigned a partner.
3.) Students will get a hand-out with instructions, requirements, and copy right information.
4.) Students will get to watch my example video provided, and spend one day with a tutorial on how to use the Windows Video Maker program.
5.) Students will spend another day with their search for information and decide on a topic and standard while in a computer lab.
6.) Once standard and topics are chosen students will be allowed to begin their creative video two to three minutes long addressing their topic.
7.) Students’ videos will be reviewed by me before submitted, and then the students will complete and share their video with the class.


3. List at least 3 expectations for the student’s movies. This needs to go beyond the technical specifications already given in the Movie Checklist.
#1. Students will be expected to work together in the movie production.
#2. Students’ video productions must be appropriate for the chosen subject matter and meet the requirements on the given rubric.
#3. Students’ video productions should have at least three sites of information on their credits roll.
#4. The video should include at least five organisms from that habitat (plants & animals)

4. Is the use of media in this student movie considered “fair use?”
Please list where you obtained your media (pictures, audio, video, etc.). An example of how to fill out such a chart is at Sample List of Credits.
It is important to be fair in your media use and to teach your students to be the same. From Copying Rights and Copying Wrongs, I quote the multimedia guidelines:
  • “up to three minutes or 10 percent, whichever is less, of a single copyrighted motion media work.
  • up to 30 seconds or 10 percent, whichever is less, of music and lyrics from a single musical work.
  • up to five photographs or illustrations by one person and no more than 15 images or 10 percent, whichever is less, of the photographs or illustrations from a single published work.”
