Top Ten Lists: in iMovie
I met with Norma J and June L and Boyd today. We were putting the last few details on a "Top Ten" project June is planning for her Communications 11-12 class.
She and Norma have planned a reading activity using the Top 10 magazine series. Once they've had a chance to read and rate a couple of the titles, the students will be asked to generate their own ten winners in an area they are passionate about: food, cars, skateboards, singers, etc.
Here's the handout we will use to help them organize their project:
For more detailed explanations on using iMovieHD, there is also a *great* tutorial for iMovie at on the U of Texas site.
You'll find a webpage, with short video tutorials, and a link to an entire video walk-through as well as a handy PDF version to reference. Worth visiting. (Scribd version below)
The plan is to use iMovie to present the "Top Ten" lists to the rest of the class. Here's a sample I created to show the students.
