The Best of the American Revolution

January 21st, 2013 · 1 Comment · Content - Social Studies, iPad, Video/movies

Last week Katie Llera and I worked with Claire Craft’s 7th grade class.  As an end of unit project, her students created iMovie trailers on Independence. The student feedback was very positive.  Not only did they enjoy creating the trailers, several students said it helped them to process the information with the visual images.  Another responded “I will remember the material better because I created the trailer”. Now they want to create on for each unit! Please enjoy these samples.

    American Revolution information is wonderful. Plan on using it to prepare those students of mine who are going to Boston with me in April!
    Great Work!
