    Evidence of Impact

    I met with Mr. Hargrave to discus how to make an impactful statement about violence on campus. He had done the unit before with written assignments and some role play. I suggested we use short videos.

    In addition to the subject matter, the students were given examples of film techniques such as Focal Length, Zoom, and Camera Height 2 class periods.

    The video was first story boarded using, to generate. This was done over 1 class period, and outside of class or in study hall (also with Mr. Hargrave). Storyboard was subject to approval.

    The video would use these 3 techniques as the scene increased in intensity. Video length was to be 1-2 minutes. Video was rehearsed shot using school cameras on tripods during 2 class periods.

    Then videos were edited using Adobe Premier, which students had used earlier in the year for an animation unit.

    Afterwards, the students participated in a class discussion to discuss how each video could have been deescalated at the end.

    The students were in self-selected groups of 4, with 4 roles during story boarding/prep: Leader, Story boarder, Quality Assurance(makes sure all elements are present), and script writer. All students were responsible for all roles, but primary responsibility (and extra point) went to each.

    During filming, the students took on new roles: director, camera person, principal protagonist, Principal antagonist. The director was allowed to be on camera in a support role.

    The students successfully made the videos for the project and were able to do basic editing and post to YouTube. The Teacher was initially concerned about privacy, but I showed how to make YouTube videos private.

    Here are some of the resulting videos:
