Name: Valentina Godoy
Students will create a video that includes one video, images, and music. The video will be biographical about a person in
Americas history who has stretched the peoples freedom and rights in democracy. The choices suggested but not limited to are
Paul Revere, Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony, Mary McLeod Bethune, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt,
Thurgood Marshall, Lyndon B. Johnson, and Csar Chvez. The students will create the product and then will publish their
videos on the classroom blog for their families to see and provide feedback (I will check the comments to see if they are
appropriate and then publish them).

Brief Description of Learning Experience: As you address the standards, what will students and teachers do? How will
the project be introduced? How long will it take to complete? What audience will use/care about the multimedia projects
students are creating? How broad is this audience? How will student work be assessed and by whom? Who will provide
feedback to students about their work? (Overview should be approximately 1-2 paragraphs)
As an introduction to the social studies lesson, I will start talking about our freedom and what democracy means. This will also
be done in discussion form with the students. They will add their input in the discussion and once that is clear, we will talk about
some examples of how we have freedom in the United States (womens suffrage rights, freedom of religion, etc.). Then I will ask
an essential question: how did we gain that freedom? I will have the students answer that on a blank paper while giving them a
few minutes to think about it. After the few minutes are up, we will share our answers.
After we discuss our answers, I will show them the video that I put together of Susan B. Anthony and her heroic act to give
women the rights to vote. After the video, I will ask the students, how did women gain the right to vote? as a rhetoric question.
I will explain to them that they will be creating the same type of video. I will have the students brainstorm a couple of rights or
freedoms that we have in this country. After they have selected the one they want to use, they will make a connection to the
person or people that made that right subsist. The student will be researching important dates of that chosen person as to make a
timeline. They will then find audio/music (Jamendo.com), pictures (10), and 1 video (Discovery Education) of that person. They
will put their video together by using Movie Maker. They must add captions to the pictures, animations, a title, and credits. Then
once we present them in class, they will be published on the classroom blog for their families to see. I will send a note home
asking parents to give constructive criticism/feedback. We will spend about 2 days on this project. I will also provide feedback
using a checklist-like rubric.

Student Engagement/Higher-Order Thinking: What LoTi level would this lesson be and Why?
The students will reach a LoTi of 5 since the students will have reached the high levels of Blooms Taxonomy. The project will
all be student-driven, with incorporated authentic learning. The students will be creating the video themselves as their own
original product. The audience will be beyond the classroom.

Importance of technology: Why is using a multimedia authoring tools critical to the project? Could the project be
completed without this technology? What would be lost without using it? What other types of technology, if any, are
going to be used in the learning experience?
Using a multimedia authoring tool is critical because this allows the students video to be their own original product. It also
allows the product to look more professional and sophisticated. This project, with all the specifics could not be done without
technology because the project incorporates technology when doing the research, the video, and the publishing on the blog.


Inspiration (optional): If you used existing multimedia projects as a model for your project (whether in part or whole),
include the URL(s) so we can visit. Explain what concepts you borrowed from others.

Internet Safety and Student Privacy: Briefly discuss some possible issues surrounding internet safety and student
privacy that could arise while implementing this learning experience and explain how youd minimize risks to
students/yourself, alleviate any fears by parents/administrators, and follow school districts Internet Safety/Use Policy.
On the note sent to the students for their family to give us feedback on the blog, I will authorize the feedback. Also on the note, I
will ask for the permission of the students parents/guardians to make sure I have authorization to put their work on the blog. The
students will also have limited websites to do the research on. They will be reminded to never put their personal information on
the school computers. I will also talk to my administrator beforehand to get approval from him/her.
