MOVIE MAKING

HOW CAN WE USE MOVIE MAKING IN THE CURRICULUM?
- Filming concerts/dances etc for enjoyment, self assessment, sharing with others...
- Retelling a fairy tale
- Bringing a poem to life
- Instructional writing - show how to do something (from a PE skill to a recipe/cooking show?)
- Documentary
- Play/acting
- Recording events
- Advertisement
- Current events - the news!
- Bring a story to life
- Why not make your own CHAIR AEROBICS video?
- Presentation of inquiry learning - present as an interview?
- Interviews
- Claymation - issues e.g. water safety.
- MANY OTHERS!
