Activity 6: Newsreels/Report
Time: 615 minutes
In the culminating unit activity, students have the opportunity to exercise skills learned in this and the previous unit and employ knowledge acquired throughout Activities 1 through 5. In addition, students hone their skills of researching, recording, and communicating. Teachers assess the achievement levels of students in the four main categories of knowledge and understanding, thinking and inquiry, application, and communication. The activity involves the entire class in putting together and filming a newsmagazine type show or series of newsreels. The activity is broken into five components: research and inquiry of a set topic; preparation of a five-minute skit/scenario/role-play (newsreel); presentation of prepared performance; written report; and unit test.
