Writing Assessment: Video Project

 

Dear students,

Last Thursday, we finished watching the action film “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”. Read the following instructions about the formative assessment related to this film.

1. Write a draft (in your English notebook) of a film review on the film you watched. It must be between 180-230 words. Include the following information:

– basic facts (name of the film, actors, genre, etc)

– what the story is about (plot)

– what you thought of two or more aspects (characters, special effects, music, dialogue, etc)

– your overall opinion of the film

** Use “however” to express contrast between two sentences (“It isn’t a very long film. However, the plot is complicated) and “although” to express contrast between two pieces of information in the same sentence (Although it’s a children’s film, the ending is quite sad)

2. During your lab session this week, use the app “Educreations” in an iPad to trasfer your draft. Include the following slides:

A. Title (My Film Review on “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) + your name + your class

B. Two pictures of the film (describe each picture by recording your voice)

C. Your text (read it aloud and record your voice)

D. Your web sources (links to the webpages where you took the pictures from and any other information)

YOUR VIDEO MUST NOT LAST LESS THAN 1.30 SECONDS, ORE MORE THAN 3 MINUTES.

Check out the following video tutorial in case you don’t know how to use the app:
